Such a deal. New affordable airplane. Two seats. One radio. Great value.

And folks think boats are expensive.

THT folks don't go for a single engine..no way, you need at least trips or quads on that thing.

Shoot it is an inboard only outboards will do in multiple quantity. Because everyone knows changing the oil on a single inboard is so much more difficult.
Getting home and landing on one engine in an twin engine aircraft is just a tad harder than docking on one in a twin powered boat.

Cue the standard B-52 joke--BUFF calls "priority requested in circuit, engine failure" -anonoymous voice over radio "oh no, the dreaded seven engine landing"

I worked for a guy who had his throttle cable disconnect while flying, leaving the engine stuck at idle. He landed it on the street.

The plane had just received it's yearly certification.
