Most I've seen resemble a 4x4 transfer case run backwards meaning where the engine was is now the output shaft and where the front and rear driveshafts were are where the engines connect.

With electronic controls it should be very easy now to sync them.

Going back to WW2 some LCM's where powered with 2 or 4 6-71's tied into a common gear box and did they fight each other a little? Yes, but you could be close enough to make them work better than one engine but they were slow speed and reliability was the main reason for multi-engines on a sinlge shaft and not performance.

On diesels you have two types of governors load senseing or speed sensing. Speed sensing you tell the governor how much fuel to give the engine and if it bogs down you give it more throttle, exactly like a carburator does.

In load sensing you set a desired RPM and regardless of load the governor adjusts the throttle to meet the desired RPM's like a big CAT dozer would have.

The LCM's used load sensing governors so when the Capt. moved the throttle he set a desired RPM range and the engines adjusted themselves to meet that RPM. Today it's all computers, no more springs and flyweights!

On the LCM's should they loose and engine or two they could still complete their mission and get troops on the beach that was the main concern.

I've always loved the look of that 50 Passion Cat w/Turbines, and can't wait to see the new 50, w/1350s. Should be a show stopper!!

Any plans to build a 39-40' stand up boat..? or do you feel that market is all tied up?

Beautiful boats btw I was blown away with the quality and workmanship when i saw them in Miami a few years ago.

Probably bring the 50 to Dessert Storm the owner has talked about doing that run. We are looking forward to running a 1350 boat. The 42 with 1100's will be a animal with any luck we can convince him to leave clear lake and head west also..
We are always talking about starting a stand up model based off our 42' once we get a few people ready we will produce it. Anyone with interest please contact me ..

Thanks Nick 813-417-6424
