Olly, well done.

That's the answer for the smaller Nashers Bombard.

If I can find yet another Broken Suzuki DT9.9 I can build a second good one out of the bits I have and put twins on the Bombard.

Cool.

Little boat was going pretty good. I'm actually fairly impressed.

Did I see that the motors were independently tiller-steered?

No they had a bar across between them but I guess they had independent tiller throttles!

One of those things that is "Why?" "Because I can"

I did similar with a pair of 2hp Evinrudes on an 8'6" dinghy when I was a teenager.

No need to join them together - wind up the friction on one engine leaving it straight ahead and steer the other one with your foot whilst lying on the thwart.

Not much slower than the same boat with a Yamaha 4hp but horribly noisy!
