I even recognize what it is!

But you couldn't PAY ME to take a boat with twin stern-drives (yug) and the name NAUGHTY CALL on the transom. (I'd never be able to un-see that name.)

Dave, just for my education, why are twin stern drives bad? I would have thought they would be advantageous for maneuvering in tight quarters.

for utility they are great. repairs are an expensive nightmare. many people have had lots of issues.

Right! "Twin screws" are always nice for maneuvering, but the machinery stays submerged, and those big holes in the transom have their own risks. It's "fun" talking to the mechanics about them at the marina where I store Sarge. One customer had to replace his drive, and found that the new one required a SMALLER hole in the transom.

I very purposefully went with a big outboard, which tilts completely out of the salt water, requires no holes below the waterline, and is on a bracket completely outside of my cockpit. But I'm getting out of bounds here...

Ahh...that makes sense. I was wondering if it was something besides maintenance costs. Thanks so much!! :)

Called to inquire about the Ericson 39 and Columbia 8.7. No sails, no motors, interiors gutted.
