On that day when the boat was put into gear we were traveling at 15 mph
We had two false starts (due to the local boys on opposite sides of the track)
The turbocharger failed halfway down the course, I melted 3 pistons out through the exhaust ports, the overflow line blew off the heat exchanger, coolant pissed out, ran along the length of the engine and entered the intake.
We coasted across the finish line half a boat length ahead of the prior years champion.
Best race I've ever been in by far
Engine had 22 hours on it
I cobbled a turbocharger together that night from a box of parts and pieces (and not knowing the full extent of the issues internally) and took her home under her own power the following day, although at a severely reduced rate of speed.
