Redbay... all outdrive legs are on the power and torque limit in and around the 300hp mark, its no problem putting a bigger engine on to any of the legs, but they simpily will break......
thats why surface drives have been tried on Scorpion or Revenger ?? I dont know which , But its is basicly to shove out more power, with out jetdrive......... Jet drive can handle the power, but doesnt work in the air, and takes up alot of room, heavy and expencive etc etc... and heaps of advantages, but not really for lesure useage, one of there best advantages is they are uniffected by loads, ie fully loaded or empty, (ie fast ferries) and the shallow drive of course
I have heard about Gary, and aparently he Knows his stuff, I would ask him why Volvo...... they have a second hand 8.4 with yanmar (2000), but it now has new 3X leg, so I can only asume that the previous B3 leg died
I hope I have confused you more now
YANMAR YANMAR YANMAR !!!
