So, over the past year or so, I've become good friends with Richard Chaney, owner (and driver) of Southern Maryland Rebel Racing aka Turbine Marine Inc (as well as Chaney Enterprises and 2 very big marinas). SMRR owns two boats, the practice/toy:
and Miss Mary Mac:
I've been out on the red boat a couple of times. Tops around 160, but we didn't push it that far...best I saw was 137. It's powered by twin Bell turbines of about 1200hp each, the white boat has twins of 1900 each and goes well over 200mph. So, having gotten to know Richard, and his family...I'm now part of the "crew" for SMRR and get to go to the races with them this season. SO excited!
