We don't have a whole lot of these where I'm at, but I could only imagine with all that power!
And to answer the outboard vs I/O deal, it seems much easier to replace a salt water ridden outboard motor after ten years than an I/O, not to mention cheaper too. I'm willing to bet two 8.2l merc ho's with bravo 3x drives are no less than 4 ob's, if not more. And less power.
