Stupid, if you ask me. I wonder how a 33 cat handles at 140+mph with only one drive.

Yeah, Jeffrey actually got in the mag. a couple of times. There's even a picture of Norty!!!

They do look like 4x4 drives (have the chrome steel gimbal rings) but still..... seems like UNDERkill to me.

Common sense, to me anyway, is if you can't afford to put reliable drives on that type of boat, you can't afford the boat. What's your, or someone else's life worth?

This is where ego gets in the way of "smart". My two cents.
