Dare i ask about peoples opinions on outdrives? As i understand it, if you use them really hard they suffer from overheating due to the leg being out the water,(on all ribs), but there are ways around it. Can of worms?
Thanks for the good advice.
Mercruiser Bravo sterndrives are often paired up with 300/315hp Yanmar diesels. There have been some (many) failures of these drives when used with these engines - it would appear that they can't take the torque.
Bravo "X" series drives are the latest incarnation and claimed to be better.
Showers are often fitted. Might make a difference.
