A single engine with out thruster will do about 95% of the manuvers required to get into tiny slips in advese conditions.

With a thruster a single engine can do 98% of the manuvering a twin can do.

This assumes very skilled and practiced operators for both boats!

A good skipper will know when to say NO, and demand a different slip , or simply anchor out.

Really depends on your cruising lifestyle , M>M marina to marina or anchor out most of the time.

1 or 2 engines is not a rational discussion , it is a RELIGOUS discussion , like anchoring or gas vs diesel.

Tons in the archives,,,,
