Putting the fuel in a 250 ETEC is bad enough......... and lauch and recovery could be interesting on a steep slippery slipway.

Probably cost about the same to run as your Etec - remember it will use red diesel.

Red juice or not me thinks twin 1000hp motors might drink plenty more than an 250HP Etec....

Why oh why did the MOD spec such rubbish engines. 1200hp in a Challenger tank they're ok. 800hp in a boat they fall apart.

The new ones go alright with the 1000hp MTUs though.
