So, are you saying no no In/Out engine? Is it simply because harder for maintenance/repair, or any other reason?
Thanks.

Gotta go get some sleep, been looking at ugly/beat-up boats through the night

Yeah, I guess that is what I am saying. Maybe it is an East Coast/Florida thing, but a lot the "serious" sports-related power boaters I see have center console boats with multiple outboards. I think motor redundancy is key from a safety perspective, especially if you are going offshore. If your I/O with a 350 Cleveland dies offshore you're not likely fixing it on the water. At least with an outboard you can easily pop the cover and take a look without having to remove panels or go down in the hull. Might just be me. Again, not an expert on powerboats.
