Ya I am not sure either, there are not ignition cuts outs like the alpha drive on the outboard, they shift under power.... uninterrupted.

keep the idle under 1000 and you are golden.

Default Three motors?

One in the Tunnel??? In the constantly changing water heights in the tunnel?? In moderately rough water???? Ask Brad, I think he runs (3) He would be able to comment good or bad! Can you insure that??? I tell the Ins. Co. (2) 300's (relatively small motors) 32' Skater (big boat) and every Ins. Company but one said, "Don't call us, well you know the rest

I have owned both triple and twin engine cats. Yes the center motor takes a big ass kickin. I think a twin is faster is the rough . The limiting factor on a triple in the rough is over reving the center and killing the lower unit or powerhead. Plus a triple is just a pain, more maintence more cost more props but yes more speed. You decide.
