Shogun's got a new motor

It looks as though Mr Bonham-Smith has re-engined his boat

As you can see the rigging is up to the usual standard

Should make an interesting twin engined boat

One of the many previous engine combinations:

The outboard bracket is made out of scaffold tube

The engines have different shaft lengths

Classic

You may laugh but notice how the starboard motor is slightly more powerful than the portside one.

This clever solution neatly negates the torque steer effect of the propellor & results in a more comfortable & less stressful drive.

No problem as there is no tie bar and each engine has its own steering system (similar in concept to the Volvo IPS system)

All it needs is two steering wheels and two drivers

I think Dictator prefers tiller steering (one in each hand) much more entertaining
