    not to mention that many and sometimes very expensive engine warranty issues ( exhaust) are caused by boat builders bad installs, so the more of that that can be pre designed in, the better for everybody

    just a user review of a twin rig Volvo IPS
    Used in and around Singapore, propellers constantly damaged due to there being nothing in front of them to protect them as you might expect.
