No, but I almost did. The steering wheel held me in. I bent it pretty good though

We installed a pair of T58s in this 38' cougar, About $300,000 + the cost of the boat. I am sure you could buy this one cheap

The brake system works great once you get the hang of it. It also keeps the rest of the boat neet and tidy. Nothing other than the turbins to work around.

Here's few of My Way

How about making an inline Arneson "outboard" turbine??

Just a waterproof cover and then inline with the drive..but all external...think it would work...or just plain crazy?

In Cape Cod we were running 115 in 4-5's during the race, so the answer is no
