Bilgerat sold his 25 with a set of 2.0L Merc 150 two strokes (390lbs each) on a bracket. Those are light engines compared to what's out there today.

Did you read the bigfluke posts from 2007?

Something is very very wrong with this setup.

26% prop slip at cruise is really really bad.
29% prop slip at WOT is WORSE.

Are you sure you weren't towing the dock.
