Default Just thought I would share this hilarity

I have ZERO affiliation but can honestly say I have never seen this before. Maybe two different brands but always the same size. Is the one a "kicker"?

23 Foot Pro line 250 with walk a bout cuddy cabin, ss bimini top, and anchor pulpit. This is a great beginner boat that could use a couple small projects finished {but not needed} and a good cleaning to be sea worthy. Will come with life jackets, throwable preserver, anchors, fishing poles {need restringing}, net, and fish finder/globe. Aslo fins, air horn, whistle, and diver down flag. Boat and trailer lights work as does the horn. Both engines starts up every time and run good. The big boy is a two cycle Evinrude 225 and the smaller is a two cycle Evinrude 110, Yes you can run them both at the same time, 35-40 mph boat depending on load. If the ad is up it's still available. $4,400. obo

Maybe its just an owner without a lot of money, got these two motors for very cheap. He is not worried about impressing other boaters and just wants to get on the water for what he can afford.

Run the bigger one at a lower RPM and they will get him where he wants to go.

I am a boater without a lot of money and I still have two of the same motors. They are both standard rotation. I have to imagine the force to steer that thing!

I had a 21' Whaler hull with a 25 hp Tohatsu and 2 tohatsu 8 hp. I would ramp up the 8 hp engines to about 90% power then bring the 25 up to about 90% power and they were all in sync at about 12 knots on plane. Of course the 25 hp was connected to steering and the other 2 were just pointed straight ahead.

Can you imagine the GPH of gas/oil, and the noise? That is a special setup there!

I'd buy it but the left engine is not C/R. What is he thinking?

then he should pick a more affordable boat! i could find a better boat/power for equal cost! hell i just sold 24 proline with a 250 ox 66 for $6k last year. boat and motor were mechanically sound!

Those are Yamaha motors that have been "fixed". Of course you need the smaller in case the larger doesn't make it back. LOL

They're both propped the same direction without anti feedback steering. It made to compensate for the prop walk.
