Cool boat, but that looks like the exhaust of some piston motors sticking out of the hatch?

That is not the Miss Geico Turbine boat. This boat was called Traffic Light and was owned by Ed Smith from St. Clair, Michigan. Ed Smith or Evil Ed as he is known to some still owns the boat and is the Throttleman but has a new sponsor. Cleveland Construction LTD. This boat was freshly painted this year and looks great, sounds great, runs great and has one hell of a Rooster Tail for the race fans.
