I promised Walt that I would not comment on this topic anymore and I have too much respect for the man to renege on a promise I make to him. So you'll have to figure out the answer to that one on your own.

There was a lot of talk about running on one engine a while back. It would seem 3 screws would be a perfect shoe in (or skeg in) for the go slow go fast boat.

There seems to be hordes of trawler guys that want to do the slow fast gig but no tripple screw boats to be seen.

For triple engines, see the Halifax class FFH (Fast Frigate Helicopter) of the Canadian Navy. Two diesels, that push her to 16 knots, then add the gas turbine to get her up to 30 knots.

The other way around, a single diesel for cruise and two gas turbines for sprint. A delightfully complex and expensive combining gearbox drives two screws through over-running clutches for a CODAG drive.

The only people who worry about that sort of thing operate large ships in the liner trades or toy boats.

I wasn't talking about my boats dangly bits, I was talking about my naked self leaping from tree to tree as they float down the mighty rivers of British Columbia, where I cut down trees, I skip and jump, I like to press wild flowers. I put on women's clothing, and hang around in bars
