Turbine Scarab

A couple of shots of the motors (turbines) going into the scarab,I will post some images of the boat and gearbox in the next day or two.
38' kevlar scarab 1600hp full weight under 4 ton should be fun!

Jason, A warm welcome to Boatmad.com!

Your project has already had a fair bit of discussion 'off forum', and I'm sure now there will be plenty of interest in your progress, please post as many pics as you can.

and again, welcome.

JF

Is it possible to post more than 1 photo at a time?

Jason, the only way to post video is to upload it to a server, then put a link on the forum, how big is the video file?

You can upload a pic with max resolution of 640 wide x 1500 high, (max file size 200k) so if you have photo editing software you can stick 3 together as one image, failing that you have to do a post for each pic.
