Why would anyone put thrusters on a turbine boat? Sounds more like a Hattaras. Check with Hellfire. He shifts without powering down.

We were running 100 pretty comfortably in big water in Miami.
It is a 51 OL. I would NEVER bet against Bacardi in any water
Johnny T and Dave Scott are a great team.

PS We were in the boat pictured in Post 42
