I haven't built this model, but I did build a Mobile Mrine Models Nangee, and fitted her with single prop and steering kort nozzle, you will find the Spindrift very manoevreable with single prop and kort nozzle, but you will have to go up a bit on size, I don'y know what size the props and nozzles are on Spindrift, but I would probably go for 90mm on a vessle of this size, you will get a nice steering nozzle from Mobile Marine Models, and a nice prop from Prop Shop to mtch the nozzle. If you are going to stick with the kit nozzle and prop but only use one you will lose a bit some towing power, but speed will be just as good, and she should steer very well, even going astern. The only thing you won't be able to dois turn on th spot by going ahead on one and astern on the other motor, but by backing and filling you will till turn short round.
