As stated in the articles and in some of the above posts, these drives are designed for express cruisers, not trailerable boats, not GFBL boats (if you don't know what that is, check out the Lake Winnie speed woosies thread!), not fishing boats, and not snailboats.

i bet most people have the misconception that your drives are more expensive due to the boats they end up on... i rather have asd's than pay merc for sixes and my next cat will reflect that....

Ship Shape TV did an episode on it, its running all week on Fox Sports Net http://www.shipshapetv.com/

definitely not for performance boats but big gains in speed with small yachts.
