Bought my first boat with twins a couple of years ago. A 28 footer with twin big blocks. I could never go back to a single engined boat again. Why you ask ? Could it be the solid feeling it has going thru the water, the ease of docking, the ability to get home on one engine if need be, or maybe the extra speed & power, no my friend , it's none of these !! I don't know if I can put this into words properly because it's sort of a feeling or aura that can only be experienced by driving a boat with twins. It happened to me the first time I test drove the boat & I loved it !I think some of the other guys tried to explain it too, and I quote, Jafo called it " the cool factor " JT29 said " the sweet sound these make when running in sync " STEVE H notes " nothing sounds better than starting up 2 engines " RUSS calls it " awesome feeling that you get from having one motor running and having to fire up the second, how cool is that ! Put all this togeather, throw in some Tim the tool man Taylor logic, ARRG, ARRG, ARRG, and you get the twin engine boat mystic. You really have to drive one to know what we're talking about here. And as long as your going to buy a boat with twins, do you really want one with teeny, weenie, tiny small blocks, or one with GIGANTIC BIG BLOCKS !!! I know that the small blocks can be built to similar horsepower but you still have small blocks here. Wouldn't you rather tell everybody that 2 BIG BLOCKS are sittin under that hatch ?? Yes you would !! Well I hope this helps you make up your mind & I'll see you on Lake George In 6 months.
