Official numbers out from the Ocean Cup World Record attempts as A77 Lucas Oil E3’s Nigel Hook and Jay Johnson completed the rough 112.5 mile run just 12 minutes shy of their previous record run last year.
This is such a no-brainer, please post race results so we can follow the progress of these systems, fuel consumption would be interesting to understand also...
We’ll be there to see it up close before the Ocean Cup race! 🏁
Look forward to seeing the engines start up video and helis working to take up and share footage. Incredible boat for sure.
Clint Jackson wondering if it will make it to the Ozarks?
He had it in 140’s but stated with the amount of power it has its wild so easing her up
This boat will run as fast as the hull and props
Looks like a Ted McIntyre build. Very nice.
Who wants to go tubing ?
Up grade to 2 Nick Smith
Any relation to Al Copeland?
I want one…
400-ish GPH @ WOT ??
What could go wrong. 🤠
Related to Al ?
She 👀 good out on The Bull!!
What's wrong with the comments here, they have no idea what they are talking about, let me explain this in a language you all can understand. 3600 hp is not going to burn 400 gallons of fuel an hour even at full throttle. Hey Mr Connelly NO JET FUEL unless you can afford 150.00 a gallon go for it lol. If any of you knew anything about Turbines you would know you can burn E- 85 and not lose any performance???.
I’m counting on a special reduction gearbox between the turbine output shaft and the outdrive…
what I would like to know is what gear reduction y’all ended up using. Also, are these Alison engines you chose?
Nice trailer 🤷♂️
I wouldn’t mind seeing this run at the lake of the Ozarks shootout 🤙🏽🤙🏽
When the budget doesn't leave room for the trailer.
I remember his catamaran in lake ponchitrain doing 120+mph across the middle. Cool sight to see when I was a kid.
I remember the turbine they would bring to Key West as extra toy and shoot flames out at Mallory square
I have a picture of it two days ago when I passed it going down i40. For some reason it won't let me show the photo here of it...
Can o be y’all’s boat driver!!!!!🤤🤤🤤
A whole lotta badassness goin on right there!
Four turbines into Two out drives? 🤔
why not use arnesons ????
Nice set up whats the speed am sure there are some high numbers💪💪💯💯💯
That’s when you know 💩‘s getting serious.
Well if any of you knew anything about Turbines, my next boat will have 2 x 3250hp gas Turbines and I'm hoping to put them in the New 60 foot Skater with a closed Canopy and if I run this boat in Fresh water I should not have to do any work on it for 3500 hours, I'll be running Well over 200 mph and it's going to stay a pleasure boat. 1 more thing with Turbines you can burn 🔥 any kind of fuel you want, doesn't have to be the most expensive gas on the planet lol.
