Light up the cove on moonless nights. Warm up the cove on cool, crisp days. "Hey kids, want to roast wieners and make smores? Light up the turbine!"

I've seen those vids before. 1350hp and 80mph shows the limitations of the dual-jet drive system. On the other hand you get there in about six seconds. And the mid-range acceleration is more like a drag car than a boat.

Turbines use a good percentage of the airflow as cooling. The exhaust an be water cooled instead of the heat blanket, but then you loose the ability to play flamethrower.
