I can imagine the engine being torn of the back of the boat with the amount of force on it, also taking a transom landing the engine would hit 1st which would force the bow straight down through the next wave etc.

Doesnt look like a good idea to me.

I am looking to fit three of them in my new toy, with a few mods!
As a unit, they are well built and although not for every use they suit what we are looking for.

Got to get rid of the sails and hear the whine of the turbo's again!!

Out of interest, what do they retail at in comparison with a normal sterndrive setup?

I was quoted just under 15k for the 200hp turbodiesel - special price until end of June - retail I think is 19k.
