Is there even room for twins on the back of an Aquavite?!

I'll come out for a spin for sure, Herm may be a bit tricky as I have no cleats or anywhere to tie up apart from the towing eye! haha

That would take some doing - but wonder what speeds!

I had the red / white Aquavite running high 70's / touching 80 with the 250 HO on it!....

Still trying to decide on a future project and now that I cannot get any more Aquavite 23's - I have been considering designing an Aquavite 24. Possibly looking at set-up with same mechanical arrangement and cockpits as the V24's. But also having an open cockpit / outboard engine version too.
