On another note, I think it's funny when people call his piston cat Zuperman, too lazy to recognize that the boat's name is Man of Steel? - or are they just confused my the picture of Superman with a Z on his chest? Anyhow, the Turbine cat is an Outerlimits (although there was a lot of people saying it's an MTI) it was rigged by John at Turbine Marine, inc. The best in the business, who also does all of Haggin's Miss GEICO Turbines.
WRONG ON GEICO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THEY SWITCHED TO WHISPERING TURBINES. they're the ones that do miss elam unlimited hydro and most of the others and also did the miss bud unlimited.

"inspecting" hhhmmmmm. well what you inspecting, others call rebuilding, either way technically WHISPERING is now performing all geico's turbine work along with its own inhouse crew that just got done re-rigging the Mystic.

i guess you missed that announcement on the front page of this website?

WOW. Many misinformed people willing to argue. Tracy is very good at what he does for the Ellstrom family and probably his other customers at Whispering, however he has nothing to do with the Miss GIECO Racing team to date. Mr. John Arruda, you are changing the world.

I will try to post some pictures of Barry's new Outer Limits, if the weather is nice this weekend.

dummy, i saw with my own 2 eyes the motors get pulled and shipped off to whispering. second adam B. is currently crewing with them. i won't go into the BS that Geico kicked any one to the curb, if any thing its the other way around. since the beginning of the year they were using Whispering as a consultant and inspections. and then they decided its in their best interest switch all there re-builds to tracy.

arude-a has had nothing to do with them for this whole year. agian its been posted here on several threads.

i've always viewed actions are louder than words, so .... i'll let you make your own conclusions.
