Default 2 small blocks or 1 big block

what would be a better package in a late model 29 scarab ?
small blocks = 350 mpi's = 300 hp x 2
big block = 540 ci. 575 hp

thank's
mike

I will stick with my favorite saying (there is no replacement for displacement)

Or 1 540 cube

Ya, im no pro but pretty much from what i understand is that your gonna get lighter faster and cheaper upkeep no the single but with twins you will have a back up easier docking and i am probably some other stuff that im missing about twins and singles but this just off top off my head. Good luck!

I'd sacrifice 3-5mph for two motors. Getting stranded is no picknic.... Especially if your doing some ocean running.

29 feet is alot of boat for one motor, since it is a performance hull. If it were a cruiser, one motor would suffice.
