Tyson Gavin should be headed to Havsau with the 50' diesel cat to test the redone engines. He is coming from Industrial Injection in SLC and may be arriving either later tonight or tomorrow. Probably will need a place to launch, etc..etc.

The thread is over on OSO and told Tyson for him or Tristan to reach out to the inmates if they need help or assistance.

This is Tyson, I will be at havasu tonight around 8.

I called a few of the ramps. The marina said there ramp is not long enough for my trailer but they said the public ramp Windsor? Just put in new Ramps that are longer? We should be there around 8:30-9 Friday morning.

Someone needs to get you access to the Islander Launch ramp. That will be the safest ramp for you.

Interesting, lol read the story in the link when you have a bunch of time to kill. Built to cross the ocean in record time, and many other endurance records.

Looking forward to reading about the build.

At 1st glance those compound turbo set ups on a diesel are crazy!!

I didnt read anything about the build yet, are those Cummins based 6 cylinder motors? Sorry if its a stupid question.

For higher performance diesel stuff that turbo setup is normal. Looks like a large set of SXE compounds. He ended up doing Duramax motors... < Edit WRONG Cummins

The durminimums did not make half the power I was guaranteed so we switched to cummins

Oh cool! I read the beginning of the other thread but didn't finish. Cody from Industrial is a friend we boat together etc...

Good luck testing. This is the first I have heard of this and love diesel performance!

I may just leave it here till then, just booked rooms for desert storm

Tyson, took about 6 hours and read every single post on OSO (160+ pages). The way your mind works is incredible and the way you troubleshoot and come up with solutions is nothing short of amazing. Plus, all the parts you’ve made and installed, designed etc.

I am envious of your skills. What a great boat you’ve built and hope to see it one day on the water.

One long boat and trailer!

How many outboards would it take to push this boat??

I enjoyed watching the ramp video while you were testing those engines last month at Jordanelle. The snow in the background was cool. I almost drove up there to check it out as its only a half hour or so from my office.

Very cool. I linked the OSO build thread here last year some time. Do yourselves a favor and check it out. Some amazing engineering in and around that boat. Long journey to get to this point.

Hope to see it during poker run.

Is that a black gel or painted bottom or is it bottom painted to sit in the water long term?

I like the simplicity of black and silver.

Three axles would handle the weight of the boat and trailer but my boat holds 1400 gallons of fuel so if it was full that would be another 10,000 lbs so I had to add the 4th axle

I understand. It’s a Schiada joke thing. Your boat is beautiful. Be safe out there
