Oh and actually I live over in St Pete on Gulf blvd, waiting for the OIL to wash up on the beach infront of me.


I know the Gulf road well. Been to the Dali exhibit. I used to live in Tampa on Fletcher Ave. near USF. One of my cousins lives in Sarasota near the Ringling museum.

You won't have to wait long for that oil.

I will ask our aviation mechanic about putting diesel or gasoline in the Bell Jet Ranger, just to get his reaction

Seriously, nice boat
I am sorry you had a bad experience with a turbine powered boat.
All I can say, is that I did not build that boat you had issues with.
Regarding the fuel. Any mixture of fuels in the T53 Is fine.
I would however not compare the little Alison turbine in your heli, with a T53. You can however have your mechanic call me if you like.
Also, when you order your own Statement cat, I am possitive they will build you one with your type of pleasure motors. Yanmars or Mercs ?
Enjoy.

Yanmars well could two of them even get the Statement cat on plane?? Are the sponsons wide enough for four engines, like the Nor-Techs? There is a 46Skater with diesels but they are Buzzi's 850s I believe.
