Open,

The Titaniums are XR style Bravo's. Jeff is looking for a speedmaster replacement, as we will be upgrading the power over the winter to 1000+. Our drives are strong, but not that strong.

Older set of ASD # 8's just remounted on a 39 ft Cat.

These things are pretty much bullet proof. They understand big power and straight forward real well. Increased HP to the shaft and increased MPH.

Handling: The closer they are together the more difficult to dock. Like what was mentioned previously, "experience will overcome most of that". Staggered set ups would be the worst case scenerio.

This particular set up has the props approx 7 feet apart.
