Do you start your engines at the same time?

Personally, I think one of the best sounds in boating, its starting the second motor. (And/or subsequent motors thereafter.)

One at a Time.... I agree with you, I love hearing that second Big Block fire up.

Brian are you just trying to make the Baja guys look bad?


The first one is a little hard on the drives with the hole shot

One at a time. I can't turn both keys at once. When flushing, I start one and run it, then I turn it off before I start the second, to insure there's plenty of water running through the engine.

Always one at a time. Fire first, check all guages, ensure all's well and then fire the other one, repeat.
Fire two at once and walk away???.....no.

Nice warm-up and checkout procedures.

What could go wrong anyways? Right?


That's the trouble with boats- they'll sell one to anyone with the $$.

Someone told me years ago: "The only thing that sounds better than cranking up a big block with straight exhaust is cranking up the 2nd big block"

PURELY coincidental. They just popped up as 'additional related videos' on YouTube.

I noticed the holeshot too. Holeshots are not a big deal, but they will definitely cost you.
