Twice for me also...from WAY over the horizon. I guess it's a tradition in the big water down here. It's not un-usual to take a quick 65 mile run to the Bahamas...reduces the pucker factor considerably knowing your doubled up.

I think we see a lot more twin set ups here for that reason.

a 30' cat with a single will b unreliable on drive.

never seen a 30' performance cat with a single but i would suspect u could end up looking like a fool around the docks vs. a hero with some egg beaters on back.

I know Kachina was building a 30 cat with single or twins, saw a couple on the production line but the owner died & I never saw one get finished. would have been pretty cool to see how the exact same boat would perform side by side single vs twin
