Dave’s Scott’s 4,000-hp Nauti Marine catamaran won’t be the only 50-foot Mystic at the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout August 23-29, but it could be the only one running. That’s according to John Cosker, the owner and found of Mystic Powerboats in DeLand, Fla.

“Hopefully, JBS is going up, but they had some problems with their turbines two weekends ago so we’ll see,” said Cosker.

“We should be able to make it,” said Jeff Stevenson the owner of JBS Racing, which is moving its turbine engine program in-house from Turbine Marine. “We’re planning on being there.”

StIf JBS does make it, the cat will be driven by Stevenson and throttled by Joe Skrocki.

“Don Onkan is talking about going as well in the new open-cockpit 50 we’re building for him with twin V-16 engines—I think he’s making 1,600 or 1,700 horsepower a side—but I’m not sure that his drives will be ready,” added Cosker. “But he’s going to bring the boat, even if it’s just on display.”
