Keith, it is indeed a very simple cooling device. An outdrive gets very hot, by fitting a simple pick-up attached to a hose over the leg, the sea-water cools it down.

Seem to be plenty available in the US. Worth mail ordering from US direct?

Hi Alan

I have tried the US, not the link you gave, which looks good, but

The problem has always been shipping they want as much to ship as the drive shower costs, or in some cases more.

I have e-mailed the company you gave and will see what they come up with.

In the mean time I think I will still look into a DIY job.

Regards Gary

I saw that Andy Micklewright had fitted one to his RIB Awesome over the winter. It was a single bit of aluminum tube that started with one end facing forward under the stern and the other end pointing down at the top of the drive. He said it took him 10 minutes to do!
