Hybrid boat...

Dispatch 33' Garwood- (She starts around :55) V-12 Rolls Royce engine - YouTube

Its a hybrid, it burns a little bit of fuel at the dock, and a **** ton when you get on it!

I bet it took 5 gallons to prime that motor!

That's a 650hp Rolls Royce V12, if I lived on a lake I'd crank her over at 5am on the weekends...

I don't know maybe Allison V12's for a boat?

Their was one in the Thimble Islands with triples that's now re-powered with Cat diesels. Right after the war the owner put in triple LM2500 Packard V12's because he wanted his milk to be extra fresh every morning! It might have burned 300GPH+ but it got him his milk super fast...
