    I've never scattered one yet but did seize one piston in the Allison engine . Thats not bad for around 450 cumulative hours on the two engines . 2.5 till I die !

    I have put a bunch of hours on them over the years with the smaller boats as well. When I look back it has been the big hulls "that you stay in the throttle for a lot longer duration and load them harder" that have been the assassins. I am looking for forward to the 5000 rpm 100 mph cruise capability of the STV with an X and 34 when its done soon. You will have the chance to drive and experience it first hand as well.
