*Absolutely.* So the trick is to buy a boat with two engines to begin with.* That way one doesn't have to spend a bunch of time writing posts to boating forums in attempts to convince one's self that one engine is as good as two.* :-) :-) :-)
*I have two engines and a bow thruster.* I'm thinking of installing a stern thruster and an auxillary get home engine.
* Actually my trawler was and my Blackfin is a single screw with no thruster.* Neither have been a problem.* My Mainship Pilot was a single with a bow thruster.* That was a great combination that I would consider again.
