    Well,It looks like a doable set up for drag racing if he can spool it up enough and stay at the rope without jumping the start. The sound alone is badass!

    If that's Henry Morris's boat I saw that run a couple years ago at Jack Wellers' place.
    The boat is a true work of art. Meticulous rigging. Went to great lengths to remove ounces of weight.

    The turbine is really cool and unique.
    Seeing it there in person and asking questions I learned a little about turbines.
    They have nothing at all as far as throttle response.
    Takes them a while to get revved up.
    The turbine in Henry's boat is around 375 HP

    I have several pictures and video of it running.
