Please refer to post #448 again and keep it clean please. I don't think Mr. Peter was referring to the same type of INN-U-ENDO (sp?) you are.
Quite correct RT. Thanks for clarifying that. I was of course using the British 'buggered', as opposed to the US version.

buggered
Pronunciation: /ˈbʌgəd/

Definition of buggered
adjective
[predic.] British vulgar slang
(of a person) extremely tired:
when I got there I was absolutely buggered
buggered in other Oxford dictionaries

Definition of buggered in the dictionary US English

bugger this it's taking to long.
It's very Shakespearian "much ado about noting"
I think I will go and listen to the rain and wind as cyclone Narelle passes by.
When I come back I expect post 500 to be posted.

Ok Benn, you bugger off and do that, and report back. Oh, and you might want to put a reef in the main. I believe they are now talking wind strengths of 140 plus kph.

Yup - In my opinion, twins are 2X on nearly everything as compared to singles... that includes way more than just boat motors, let your mind(s) wander!

Ksanders answered it best, and I'm paraphrasing here: "When you have an engine failure at sea, you are either glad you have twins or wish you had twins." Now lets have fun and have someone challenge this statement.

Challenge: Single or twins do you NO Good in equal dimensions when fuel flow constriction cannot be solved or fuel runs out completely! Those instances enact exactly similar results to complete engine failure(s)... when at sea!

495 is a good #
