General Engine Questions & Opinions

Shopping for boats in the PNW-for 4 to 6 months of live aboard during the "Inside passage Season". Looking at a lot of nice boats with a lot of different engine packages.

Try to research the engines on the internet and here is some 'feelings" and questions I have come up with:

1-will a pair of DDEC 6-92's move a 61' Ocean Alexander at 10 kts burning 6 gph?
2-Are DDEC 6-92's producing 650 hp with 3,000 hrs running on "borrowed time?
3-Are 3176/96 Cats some of the less desirable Caterpillar engines?
