Verado 250 XL RH

A real long shot, but would anyone have or know of a gearbox available for the above?

Barrus have been very good, but cannot obtain in UK for about a week.

Rob at Black Dog Marine recently had to source one in double quick time, might be worth a call. Can't see you getting one in less than a week though.

What's up with yours?

Looking into the future, I believe there's a good chance your port (counter rotating) gearbox may suffer premature failure. Something to do with thrust on the bearings pushing the wrong way? You could pre-emptively get a recon box from USA, would save you a fortune (dread to think what a Verado box costs retail ), and prevent any delays at the me time.

Black Dog very helpful, but doubt that they could do any better.
Thanks for the contact though

Can you believe it!!!
The same gearbox has failed on us for the second time in under two years.
Thankfully, Barrus on getting a replacement flown over and fitted under warrenty again.
Is this a "known" weakness on these engines?

That is a worry, this being their commercial flagship engine?

My 8 year old does not care what RIB we have next, so long as it has the same Verado engine as Blue Ray!
