Jet Set put on the best show. Every afternoon they would take the boat out and do high speed passes in front of the hotels on the Mallory Square end of the island. Don't know how fast but over 100 anyway. Thanks for the show. On Sunday there was a 50 Nortech cat with turbines called Warbird parked behind Conch Republic. They made a run or two but not much.

i saw an outerlimits parked on hwy 1, but never saw it run... it had the trademark 12" exhaust coming out the back.

-Mr. Fusco's Jet Set / Skater
-Mr. Tremblay's 50 Nortech
-HellFire or something of that nature the Orange/Rust colored Skater
-I think I might of seen a big Callan rig that might of had turbines but I am not sure of that.

Sorry if I erred. Also anyone with the courage to own or run a turbined boat in my book deserves to be called Mister...

GLH,
I saw those 3 as well. Dont think I saw any callan turbines though. They seem to like the Torque V12 or diesels this week.

Thanks for the precision Terry. I didn't know if it was their big turbine rig or not I don't pay much attention to cruisers like that... i guess it was not.

Gary I am talking of a big rig in the marina not the race boat they had running Sterling/Torques in it that was torn up Sunday.

Also one in the Copeland Clan although I did not see that one I think I saw pictures here.
