if 1 is good, 2 must be,,,,,,,
I was having a little fun one day. Of course, this put me 2.9hp over my 75 max hp limit LOL! I think it all has to do with the kind of presentation your using. I've been in WalleyeGuides 20' Weldcraft w/a 175 ProXS BigTiller, and he's got a 9.9 ProKicker on it. Honestly, I think todays motors are sooooo much more reliable than "back in the day", that the need for an emergency motor has diminshed. Still, better to have and not need, than need and not have.
ps: now that I look at this pic, I don't own any of these 3 motors anymore.
