Auxiliary Power

Depends on how easily the hull is driven. For example, a modern race boat doesnt need alot of power to get upto hull speed. I have a 34'' Nicholson with a 48hp diesel; we can hit 8+ knots in flat water. Yes, its probably overkill but I do like having the extra power when i need it.
