We actually found a local barge operator to do the prototype conversion at a reduced cost. It was a TR unit but the transom assemblies were similar.
Actually the TR had exhaust to work with so it was a good exercise.
By the time Biggus got here, the only thing that needed engineering was the steering brackets which we had been looking at for a couple weeks before he arrived.
At this point we have a few ways to connect the steering. Latham is the most common so obviously we have that solution.
We have done twins and a variety of multiples in the past so steering is mostly covered. If someone has an oddball we will work to convert it the best we can.
The prices are pretty straight forward, 9K for the Leg and bell housing , 12.5K for the complete transom and drive assy.
Be happy to answer any further questions.
