Just a little food for thought!

Boy, I can see a Moderator delete coming on this one!

Well I consider myself a real boater with a real boat even though I dont post much. I really enjoy reading questions like this. I will probably never have the means to own a t-53 or a Sterling 1550, but I do find it very interesting to hear about and I appreciate all the knowledgeable guys that get on hear and talk about the dream boats.

does anyone have an actual figure on how much a set of t53's thrown in by Turbine marine costs? not the boat, just the turbines and rigging?

I was wondering the same thing, I'm thinking about doing a t-53 swap into my Aristocraft 16... the 65 Johnson is getting tired, and I'm looking on the best bang for the buck upgrade. The lower unit is still good, but the power head has low compression. Does anyone sell an adapter to bolt the turbine on top, I don't see one listed on Turbine marine's website? it's non-electric shift, if that matters. Thanks guys!

Actually, someone DID make a turbine powerhead for an outboard. Don't recall the specifics. Someone call T2x.
