Re: When You Have too Much Money - Well This is for You

Such a deal at only $700,000
Dual 1350 HP jet Turbines.
Your choice of interers as long as its "NOTHING"

Oh, and here is what it sounds like going slow or fast.
Get your rocks off on this.

Too much horsepower, not enough education. This is a story about a person on a PWC killing a power boater recently in a collision....

Meh, everyone's gotta have a hobby.

I'm worried that I'm young enough that I'll live to see the day when those things have multi thousand mile ranges, and regularly bullet across the oceans on autopilot.

Sounds like a nuke powered concept.

Re: When You Have too Much Money - Well This is for You

What is it, 1900 miles from Bermuda to Azores? Doesn't seem too 'out of the question'.

20 hours at 100mph might be a bit much on the human body, though. 40 hours at 50mph? 80 at 25? I don't really have a concept for what kind of ride that would be.

20 hours at 100 mph, easy for a twin turbine but the fuel burn would be around 8000 gallons of kerosene for the trip.
