Common DR - the pictures in your imagination don't always match the picture of someone else's boat...

I guess if I squint my eyes a bit, the steps sort of blur into the rest of the hull....

Now it's clear! Triple supercharged and turbocharged Torque V-12's feeding into a custom dual turbine system hooked to 2 dry-sump #6's and a pair of prototype Arneson surface drives via a modified 4x4 transfer case used in Caterpiller front-end loaders. The transfer case spreads the torque (no pun intended) from the five motors across all four drives.

And the straight V hull ensures there are no pesky bubbles to mess up the show!

.....I look at boats like cars...the first time I took a 911 porsche on the track I didn't listen...you have to floor it in the apex of a turn ..no backing off..engine in rear...stepped boats just handle differently...

I am still ticked that the 502's were forged cranks and now the 496's are not...(assuming the Mm tech was right) ..I am checking this out further...seems like a step backwards...
