Try the 315HP and Bravo 2X. OK so far.........

Oh - and if you are considering it, it is worth taking Jono up on the offer of the D3 discussion.

Lets see what engine I end up with.

Possibly, although you would need those extra 35 horses to cart around the extra weight!!!

770kgs dry, They tried a pair in a Sunseeker 34 Hawk, and it almost sank the boat!

This is true an extra 200kg or so, is a lot of weight..... I think I would prefer the extra weight instead of a 5K bill for a new drive every 250hr though ....... 400hp would be nice
