I have a 290 with 450 total H.P. When you get into bigger boats, twins are a must. Other wise your looking at a very complicated single engine that needs to put out that kind of power. I would think it would have to be supercharged.

But hear is a thought and I don't know enough about it. Why do outdrives only have two gears? Forward and reverse. Maybe the load is too great to have a forward Hi and Low.

My 256 has a single 425 HP engine, and I'm not carrying the weight of two engines, drives, and extra fuel to feed the second engine. It's all a trade-off and a second engine certainly helps with maneuverability, and limping home on a really bad day if one engine fails.

Understood, but you have a 25 footer were I have a 29 footer with a 9.5' beam. Plus, I would think that 2 drives could push more water than one drive with the same H.P.

Agreed. I just did not understand the comment about complexity of a single high high output engine as compared to twins.

It has been tried before and for many reasons: cost, drag of bigger lower unit, propellor pitch, operator error, shorter stroke of outboard engines, more horsepower needed to turn taller gears, manufacturing problems and finally little consumer interest have killed it.  The prop pitch is a big problem because of an increase of cavitation in lower pitched props when pushed over a certain RPM.  BUT biggest reason is do you want to be on the water with ever jacka$$ capable of going over 70 mph?
