Default Anyone converted an inboard with triples to twins?

May remove the third engine from an older baja 420 with 454 mags and bravos. Wondering about the performance....I think it would be pretty close in speed. Center of gravity will change, but we can move things around for that since the cabin will be completely changed around.

There were 420's with twins and triples, wondering if there was a difference in the drive heights?

Likely will add some 177 or 174's to the remaining two motors for a little more power.

Thanks!

I did this with my 40 outlaw ,it was a lot of work ,had to cut all the stringers ,and laminate new stringers in ,a center stringer and a left and right one to support the two engines ,figerglass the 3 bravo holes ,and cut 2 new holes with 34 inch centers.
a lot of work involved though.
