with the other engine reversing and stretching the nylon anchor line that way if it clobbers a rock or theres engine failure the stretch of the nylon anchor line ( up to 50% stretch before parting )will pull the boat back out to sea past the surf line with the other tilted engine used for back up .
Can't beat a twin set up .
