wonder if they will release them to the public long term?

i assume they will very expensive as they were built for the navy, even though looks like mostly a normal optimax.

can't be too far off for one of the big boys to give the public one though...bring it on

cheers

they claim the same RPM as the petrol equiv in the bumf.

i highly doubt they smoke, legislation wouldn't allow that i would assume anymore?

cheers

Yeah Only in America
Always amuses me to read the sales blurb of respective (Same) products (especially Outboards it seems) in the US and EU.
Not too many things to commend it but (EU consumer legislation)is ALOT better at making Manufacturers go easy on the Porkies!

After doing all the Hard work,and miles seems a shame you never made it out.

If T-D works for Barrus then that would fit - they set these things up for the UK Military.

Big Thumbs Up for Scott at Barrus, BTW, he did "the right thing" for me recently!

Oh what the hell - a few bananas too!
