I can stay on plane with one drive, but I can't get on plane with one drive. 30p B1

Getting up on 2 is hard enough for it. No way will it on one.

my 28SS could with the small blocks and bravo drives and no trim tabs. found this out after running out of gas by forgettting to switch the tanks over the non powersteering motor was the only one i could get fired up...it was starting to get dark and we were a ways from home, so i figured i'd give it a try...


my cafe racer can also...540 ci with TRS drives had a few valve train failures last year and more often than not, i had to come back on one engine...luckily the power steering engine was the one that kept running... tabs down, broke motor drive up...came up slow, and sure beat the hell out of chugging all the way home

32 Skater (5 people 1/2 tank of fuel) One 300X will get it on plane with a 15x30 cleaver. It would not do it with a 14.5x32 cleaver. I have tried taking one prop off with the 14.5x32 cleavers and it still would not get on plane with one motor.

Well I guess I made a good choice 2 weeks ago. when we got back on Sunday night our port side engine was really low on fuel and come Monday I had to drive it to the Launch about 7 miles away. got about 2 miles from the Launch and my port side engine stalled out. I was only going around 40 so I slowed down and Idled with one engine to the Launch. I didn't think it would have been good to try to get back up on plane.
