Like the 89,640 horsepower part. Don't like the 200 ton weight part. That would sink my 31' boat faster than instantly!

But. . . 89,640 hp. . . .!

N2O; what prop do you think you would go with
Hydrolic steering would be a must

Yep, 2200 Gallons/Hour.

Amazingly, it's also the most efficient Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engine at 0.260 LB per HP per Hour.

Lets say you wanted to take your "ship" that contained this engine to 60 mph. Remembering that max rpm is 100 (give or take 1.5 rpms), and if you had a planing hull (vs. displacement) that would have about 12.5% slip, you would have to run a, umm, really BIG pitch. (I thought I would remember the formula, but I don't).
