The boat show was great!
The Thunderbird was the star of the show. The boat has twin allison wwII fighter aircraft engines each developing 1100 horsepower. They swing two 22" props. They originally produced a max 3000 hp each but have been detuned.
The link below shows the startup of then engines. Pretty Cool! Attached are some pics from the show.

Here's a smaller version of the Thunderbird called Thunderchick. It is powered by two small block chevys. Pics below.
