I'd be interested to hear how you get on Andre, if I figure out a way to finance my next project I'll be looking at twin diesel surface drives.

A surface drive uses a prop running behind the boat that actually runs right on the surface so 1/2 the prop is out of the water.

Can I ask why you do not want an Arneson?

It seems that all the others that are trying to make their version all have some serious drawbacks. Being that I do not think the cost are all that different amongst them, Arneson has the best percieved market name a value. ??
