Great pictures! Lucky you, I say.

What are the horsepower and torque ratings for those motors?

Don't know about the torque, but each motor is a 16 cylinder plant with twin turbochargers, and I was told each puts out around 3125 HP.

They go about 20,000 hours between overhauls, and they average around 350 hours per month.

Fuel burn for the Marshall Foss is around 500 gallons of diesel per day.

A friend of mine Gavin, with Peter as crew were sailing "Dolphin" from Dassen Island to Hout Bay when they were hit by a ship called the "Magdelena Oldendorff" north of Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela spent 20 of his 27 years in jail. Dolphin nearly sank, but they managed to pump her and make Cape Town harbour. I wonder if the "Magdelena Oldendorff" is a sistership?

The horsepower of the boat is 6350HP. THats total HP. THere are no torque specs that i can find. Oh Im the engineer of the marshall.
