The main vulnerability for a boat with twins is the fuel supply. I am sure that your Grady, like mine, feeds both engines from either the main or reserve tanks at the same time. The only time I have been dead in the water was after a fillup at a Freeport marina.bone said:after thinking about it, how many people have had to be towed in that have twins?? i'm not trying to start anything, cause i've had plenty of problems with boats out there but have always (w/twins) made it in on my own power. other than batteries, water in fuel, or a major electrical problem, i dont see a twin having problems. all the above can be prevented with regular maintence. i'm probably wrong, just asking.

i know of 2 instances where twins were dead in the water.
1 was lightning that fried the total electrical system .
other was a broken wire on the back of the kill switch, that couldnt be traced wiithout a meter.
Alot of us fish Matagorda and Sargent, so there is no tow boat anthing around for miles, Freeport to Port O is a pretty wide spread for no tow svc that i know of........................
just curious as to why the tow with twins. fuel, electrical, etc???? the more problems i hear about the more prepared i will be. thanks.Ernest said:Yes, I have been towed with twins. I have also towed folks with twins.
Read those policies real close. Check where the 25 or 50 miles start - their dock, end of jetties, from the beach, or your home port. If its 50 miles from the beach, in Galveston you considerably less coverage.
