The late Bob Nordskog raced them actively in the 70's and 80's, The late Tom Gentry set numerous World Offshore records with them over at least a 10 year span ("Gentry Turbo Eagle" hulls). Bobby Moore rigged a number of boats with Gentry power.... "How Sweet It is", etc and all of the major diesel powered hulls have been turbo charged since the 70's....?
Exactly. Bruce Falls was building bad ass turbos for open class boats years ago. His shop was next to my dads. I remember the Dyno screaming while I was a kid sweeping floors. I guess it wasn't ever going to be socially acceptable to have turbos until merc did it.
