whats that on his (scorpion) leg

went to scorpion open day saturday, was a bit of a poor turn out, but the boats are very nice. however when looking at hot lemon i noticed metal plates that sat on the housing of the legs with a small tube that almost looked like they sprayed onto the props, anyone know what it is??

Also does anyone know who the guy is who made the full width cockpit for himself on the blue rib id be very interested in chatting to him?

Drive Shower

S'probably a "shower head" attachment to keep the outdrives cool. Scoops up water as you go along and sprays over legs. Well known aftermarket add on & requirement for Bravo legs especially with 300 Yanmars.

Depends on your point view with regard to number of hours they should last before failing.

Thought Hot Lemon had Bravo ones which were OK. The well known and discussed issue relates to Bravo 3 legs.

If you do a search or two youll find plenty on Bravo 3 legs and Yanmar 300's. Suffice to say that they are both good bits of kit but not when mated with each other!

have just replaced a bravo 3 x drive leg after 700 hrs, the new one has 65 hours and the bottom set of seals have gone, they are being replaced under warranty. A friend has just replaced this leg after 600 hrs. I am also in the process of buying a new rib and will not be going for the bravo legs again, looking at the new volvo 310hp d6 at present IF you want a leg for 6/700 hours only- buy a bravo 3 x drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
