Copelands Fire breathing Turbine, as it smelled like lighter fluid going by as it then drenched us with its 100' rooster tail at the Emerald coast PR

I'd have to say "Jet Set". Those turbines winding up are something else again. Got chills when he'd come out the inlet at the Point Pleasant race shooting flames out the back.

Without question for me, it was Bob Russell's 42 ft. Outer Limits with twin 1350's, and on the back of the transom is the name "Can You Hear Me Now". At the OPBA's spring poker run (I was a card boat), when he throttled up to run across the bay to the Hyatt, there wasn't a window in five miles that wasn't rattling. I've never hear a boat just "spitting" noise like that boat. I was in love. The OPBA guys when running down from St. Pete in ROUGH water and doing around 60 or so, Bob went by them at twice their speed with a rooster tail not to be believed. I did not see that, but was certainly told about it. But the sound I did hear, nothing like I've ever heard before.

My vote goes to the Callan Marine 45' Turbine cat! My daughter and I watched them do some testing and they buzzed us @ 175 mph and it was truley incredible!

Without a doubt, it has to be a toss-up between the Callen Tencarra and the Sorcerer's Drag motors.
