on my 2700scr ..we had the 6.2ltr mpi engine with B3 drive...that was an awesome combination...more hp than a bb..just as much torque...and it was just about bullet proof....I'd recommend that if you can find the 6.2ltr...I wouldn't hesitate to run it.....but that's just me.....

Thank you,everyone for your comments and perspectives. Just wrapped up a fantastic summer on Lake Coeur d' Alene (Jeff, I HOPE you got out on Saturday...the best!) Anyway, "Lanikai" is now packed away, and we are already looking forward to the Seattle Boat Show. I'll begin looking in earnest in the spring, but what a grand summer it has been.

To all who contribute their comments to this site, a thank you as well. I always learn from your experiences, comments and questions!

Took Endless Summer out two Sundays ago, actually... the boys' football and basketball activities are cutting into my end-of-the-year boating seasons as they get older! We moor in Carlin Bay, have I seen your boat in Conkling Park Marina I believe?---or?

Hi Jeff,

'We're at Silver Beach... and didn't go south beyond "Shooters" this season as we always fell in with "evil" companions who had fun planned closer to home. Hope we can catch up in the Spring. CDA is just so great and we have met so many fun people. I get the part about kids and their activities....but it is well worth it, isn't it? I am counting on a much better Spring season next year!

Mike

I moored at Silver in 2007 and 2010, F dock (small world). Yeah this Spring sucked bigtime, we'll look for your next year!

Did you choose a boat? I saw this old post. I am in the buying mode now and also trying to make these tradeoffs. Any input from what you learned would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mark

Just to clarify, Maxum did indeed make a small number of single engine 3000 SCR's. They come with the 454 big block. There are currently (3) of them for sale and on the market at this time (Jan 2012).

To the original poster's question : With the 3000 SCR weighing in around 11,000 pounds, a single would leave you wanting more, in my opinion, unless your use of it is mainly going to be tied to the dock at the marina or your favorite anchor spot isnt far from where you slip the boat ( a short ride in other words ).

Plus, as the 3000 is prone to leaning to port when equipped with a generator, I would imagine this is even more pronounced on single engine 3000 SCR's when equipped with one, but I do not know this for fact as I have never seen one.

Hey, thank you for the welcome
Im close to buying a 3000 and have been looking and researching for about a year now so I have amassed quite a bit of knowledge/information on them. I look forward to adding appropriate contributions on this site.
