You had better pass on your advice to the crew of the Wahoo, at the Port Angeles, Wa Station.

I think they need it worse than Moonstruck.

JD, as I recall, most Mainships have the exhaust out the side. *Is that correct?

Dude, just a little scratch on the stainess steel rub rail. *The boys buffed it right out. *They didn't even complain about it. *Those guys know how to put a whipping on a wax job. *They tell me that they really like working on this boat.

The 34t's 2005-2009 have it out the back below the water line*and it has a 90**elbow pointing down.

The 390's have it out the back as well but they are susceptible to back wash*that floods the turbo and engine. It seems that the stock*elbow at the turbo isn't high enough.

Not much you can do to keep it off. The only product that works good for me is Spray 9.

RE: Transom Soot

Another factor in how much soot you produce is how fast do you throttle up? If you advance the throttle quickly the turbo likely won't have enuff boost to get the proper air/fuel ratio. Think of it as having too big of an accelerator pump on a carb. It dumps a bunch of raw fuel in and the air flow hasn't had time to get going in yet and the engine bogs and possibly belches a little black exhaust (running rich). Diesel engines operate on the same principle.

Over the years we have had good luck removing the soot from the stern of boats using regular hair shampoo. Don't know if dandruff type makes any difference. If the soot stains the gelcoat, then all bets are off without some pretty aggressive intervention. Chuck

True, but few on this board are attempting to get up on the plane.

Going from idle to,,WOW!!! 1400rpm to trawler crawl seldom belches black smoke as a fish killer will.

Low speed black smoke is an engine problem , not a dopy operator.

On the other hand, lack of a regulator might just come in handy sometime. And I will put in a .

" Unless there is an afterburner and a cat involved it will never compare to a lightly loaded turboprop on water injection."

Turboprop is simply a turbine and gear box , that will take 6-9 seconds to spin up from idle.

THe good old radial 3350 , supercharged with PRT and water injection (51 inches manifold with the water pumping) accelerates like any gas engine , almost instantly.

But then I date my self ..

I hear what you are saying but I excluded the recips because the post was about turbines.

And, the single shaft engines only have to accelerate 3 or 4 percent so their respose is just about the same (better in some cases) than the big recips.
