Default Repowered Turbine Mystic Cat Ready For First Sea Trial

It's been a long time between turbine cats at Mystic Powerboats, https://speedonthewater.com/boat-res...irst-sea-trial

Glad to see Chris take this project on, also crazy how fast they have been able to turn it around. Hope to see it in K.W

Thanks NATE5.0, after the purchase from TNT (Steven And Johnny, which as always, went as smooth as silk. I can’t say enough great things about these guys, just true professionals) the boat was immediately hauled back to Mystic. John Cosker and his team performed an intensive survey of the boat and created a pin point accurate punch list. We knew the engines were in need of attention (to say the least) and were probably the longest lead time item. So after a few discussions we decided to go with the great Jim Grisham owner of Principle Propulsion Systems. After Jim’s tear down it was decided to replace the cores and build new engines (using some of the hot rod parts we already had) in order to make the Key West poker run and as you can see, Jim killed it! All the while Ryan and the boys were back at the factory recommissioning every system, testing all of the other mechanical systems like the drives, trims, air conditioning system, even installing ATL fuel bladders (8years old, it was time).

About half way through John invited me to come down (so of course I did) and we went over some updates like new GPS, a much needed stereo system, LED lighting and most importantly cup holders! Than we decided to reconfigure and update the interior to better suit my needs and height. John, Ryan and the complete Mystic team is knocking this build out of the park!

I cant wait to see the finished product!

it sounds amazing and job well done by all involved, very impressive to say the least! have fun with her on the way to K.W and will def keep an eye out at the docks down there.

Ever Since Nick and Todd took me in the Passion 50 I have been hooked on turbine boats, nothing like it.

Nate,
So true, the acceleration is unreal in a turbine powered cat! Have fun in KW!

Chris,
Good luck in KW.
