If i remember correctly from another article and picture a while back, the heads have a plate on the exhaust side which covers a chamber that feeds cooling water or coolant thru the exhaust port area. That in of itself tells me there is a lot of things they've done to make it more 'offshore marine' friendly than your 6-7 second drag cars.

Would like to see/here more, but I'm sure they don't want to give everything away.

Would love to hear reports of these being used 'out in the field.'
No doubt they are headed in the right direction as far as design goes. I agree 1000% but I don't seen anything from engine pictures that hasn't been done for years. Coolant around the exhaust port? Sounds like something circle track guys have been doing for a long time. When did GM come out with the ROX head? I think they have taken everything everyone else has been doing for some time and wrapped it up in one package.

That is correct, the owner prefers to keep his name out of the press.

I called Todd Goodwin because, obviously with the Pure Platinum project, his name has been coming up a lot lately. Not only is he smart as hell, he's great to talk to and considering his workload he gave me much more time than I deserved. Seems like his "Forecast 2015" stuck a good chord with you guys.

As I've said before, I learn a lot more from you than you learn from me. Thanks!

What I should have said is an Outerlimits customer does have those engines ... but the boat isn't a 44.

What does "It's an open-cooled engine" actually mean when it comes to marine?

It is all internally coated with the proprietary coating they talked about or is it actually cooled differently?

Mr. Goodwin gave me a different both length. But since the owner does not want his name out, perhaps we should leave it as is ... mysterious. I'm good with that.

They Goodwin was displaying at PRI show, I did stop by their booth and picked up some info, I will look at it and see if anything worth posting especially if it has not been discussed here already. I did not talk to them as they were very busy at their booth during all times of the show.
