Has anyone done twin Mark 30's, Mark 55's, or something similar? I'm looking at a 14' Lone Star Cornado (tin).

Do I need a special throttle control for this? I'm not going to use the electric start function with these just yet. We'll see long that lasts but I'm trying to keep the boat light.

For steering, I've seen rods connected from the back of the motors, but the boat has fins and the cable pulley comes through those. Here are some imageshort of the fins.





Thanks for the help.

twin controls single or double lever. a bar between the motors and hook the cables to each of the motors.

sounds good just hook it up like a single with a bar between them . another way is to put a attaching point in the middle of the bar.

have not run it yet, but I am shooting for 40-45 mph should be doable.
