It sure is, and I am proud to say it is running our Cyborg dry-sump transmissions. This was the first turbine application, so many fingers were crossed. I know that John Arruda, the person who put it together is also very proud of it, but I don't think he posts here.

Default Turbine Nor-Tech 50

Vagrant,
Had the opportunity to take a ride in the Nor-Tech last Saturday in Key West.
I can tell you from personal experience that the boat is rock solid and not even breathing hard at 125mph.
The size, both width and length take some getting used too.
But what a ride.
It gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Fly By"

Many thanks to my friends Tony and Mona Mondazze who invited us along and a very special thanks to Ray Anthony and all the folks at Aqua Toy Store.
As a fellow boat owner I have a small understanding of what it takes to send your boat out.
I can only imagine the cost to send us out for a ride. I was mightily impressed by your hospitality and very grateful for the opportunity to ride in such a special boat.
Thank you again.

Sincerely

Robert Shin

Rice Hauler, Did you get a chance to get a ride in the other Big Bad Cat, the Toy Store's 46 skater "Lick This"? Those are 2 of the nicest Cat's to be found anywhere.
It sounds like you all had more fun on the poker run than I did racing....

PS. Nice Cig!

Cat, We have not had that boat very long, it has very little hours on it.
105mph+ Yes, all the best toys you can possibibly dream of are there. Boats, Bikes, Cars, Heli's ect. Guys and Gals get your X-Mass list out.
Tim, the boat is worth every bit of the price.

Thanks Mark (BAM MARINE) for the compliment on the outcome of Mr Anthony's turbine Boat. We here at TURBINE MARINE INC in Pompano Beach are very proud to have built a very functional turbine boat in 4 month time, and I would also like to thank you for the extra effort that you put into tailoring your SUPER SYBORG DRY-SUMP tranys to suit my needs perfectly for this project. I will also say that those tranys have been subjected to every bit of the 1600+ Ft Ibs of torque that my engines put out, especialy on the Key West poker run. Mr Anthony and I ran the hell out of that boat, cruising at speed over 100mph for 3 solid days and we never had a problem.

Thanks again
