Are there any other producers of surface drives apart from Arneson?

Is the Yellowfin available yet? I've not seen anything about it for at least 18 months - and for a bit of kit that promised so much, you start to wonder what's happened to it!!

The yellow fin has been almost ready for a long time now. I really can't understand the delay as they have had working prototypes for ages. Don't hold your breath!!!

Thank you all for your input.
we are looking at these as an alternative to water jets on our 1600 Interceptor for a particular customer. Should anything come out of this and we actually build with such I will let you know
