2 stroke inboard

I was wondering why there is no or almost no 2-stroke inboard engines??
I know that they burn more gas then diesel engines but they can run even if the boat is heeling 45 degree. I think thats a big + for 2 stroke.

The only thing very bad about 2-Stroke is the risk of explostion caused by the gazoline in your tank...

I was thinking about that because one of my friends ran into bad weather last year, got scared or something and started he's disel...he broke'blew it.


I only saw two 2 stroke inboard, one was in a contessa26 and the other one was in a paceship 25 I think.
