I want something that I can feel comfortable driving, parking, and maneuvering.
I am intimidated by twins and told Lutz that maybe we should consider a single engine for this reason.
So be honest.....how tough is it gonna be for me to learn to drive?
Michelle (My Wife) has been docking and loading twin screws for 10 years , She does just fine.
In fact some say she does better then me.
I am sure she would love to talk to you.
let us know
Damn, heres a thread from the way back machine!

Holy old threads, Batman!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously - I learned to drive twins on my dad's Carver. Just take your time and experiment in an open marina with no one around to watch you - the same way you'd learn to drive a single. It isn't any harder, it's just different. Depending on the boat, it can be much easier.
I didn't even notice!
They got a Formula 311 and they loved it. They did however sell it as they are doing a lot more water skiing these days/
Put your best foot forward!
Show me the Twins!
Our new LSM 550 motors were developed for just this reason, how to get twin motors in the back of a 28-36 foot average comfortable performance boat without loading the back end of the boat with 2200 pounds of motors alone.
The new LSM550 dynos at 550HP at 5800 rpms , 565 ft/lbs of torque all the way from 3700 rpm to 4700 rpm and it weighs just under 500lbs per motor. Not bad for a 7.3liter all aluminum freshwater cooled small block LS based engine!
You can see them @ www.raylarengine.com
Put two of these in a 28 - 36 foot twin hull and the 1200lbs you just dropped out of the back of the boat should make a big difference in performance and economy!
Just thought I would throw in a new twist to the twins versus single controversy!
