did he have 2 or 3 boats, if 2 it was repainted? and did you have a boat that you did turbines in? or was my way the boat you re rigged or had them rebuilt in, in another thread in the skater section?

It is the first one. Three Myways were built. The first,
The second, (skaters) third the outerlimits.

Not to Hijack this thread.

Yes I rerigged it with Turbines.
The hull has seen piston engines twice aswell as a second round of Turbines.
Thread is Turbine 101.
Once you go Turbines you cant go back!

Back in July '89, I was allowed to participate in a test ride on the Gentry Eagle when they were docked for a few days in Greenwich, CT just before they made their cross Atlantic speed record attempt. We went out on LI Sound and cruised at 60-70 mph on Lycoming T40 turbine power (4500hp) connected to an Arneson Surface Drive. What an incredible sound and feeling on such a large speedboat. 110' of aluminum bliss. The cockpit looked like the bridge of the USS Enterprise! This certainly remains one of the highpoints in my marine experiences.

On July 25, 1989, Gentry Eagle left Ambrose lighthouse in New York Harbor and blazed across the Atlantic to Bishop Rock on England's Isles of Scilly with Tom Gentry at the helm. She crossed the Atlantic in just 62 hours and 7 minutes, at an average 73 mph.

"Average speed of 73 mph for 62 hrs"! And didnt they have some fuel issues and had to pump out and reload?
Incredible. So what was top speed?
