    Contact Rik at Arneson. They've done a few W type setups connecting two motors to one drive.

    When I was buying my boat at Eliminator, they had an 02 25 foot ICC with twin 6.2's. The salesman said they made three of then to date andsaid it did about 90 mph. That was 2005 when I saw it. I saw the same boat as a repo a couple years ago, but if memory serves me they motors and drives were gone.

    Just one small block, built right and turbo charged will be good for at least 600hp (somewhat reliable) and upwards of 1000hp (less than reliable). Just my opinion, but I would think the extra weight of a second engine along with the complexity of joining the two to one drive... not worth the effort unless you have too much time and money.

    Put that other boat back together, a little smoke and mirrors, and sell it. Apply the funds to building a big block for the Daytona.

    On a side note, I am a big fan of Arneson Surface Drives and hope your project goes well.
