Default Jet Set flaming it up video

Going out for a spin and caught Jet Set headed out. If you dont know this boat it is a twin turbine Skater I believe. Excuse clarity shot with pocket camera. Please notice the quick comparison of Mikes engines and my engine.

Cool, did he just turn down the MEtedeconk before he hit go? Trying to figure out the spot. Love the new paint on that boat. 40' skater, i believe.

Thanks for the vid.

Yep, it's an outboard with a jet drive which he lowers for slow speed and docking. Doesn't seem to be the most elegant solution, but i really don't know how the other turbine cats do it. Maybe they just use the turbines full time? Row?

This boat was running turbines while some of the other cats' engines were still in helicopters.

Jet Set seems very loud compared to other turbines I have heard.
