Paul,
I am assuming that Simrek is your company? (If not, I do apologise) If so, why do you want to produce a top cap for the drive shower?...On your website it says that the top cap is over 1" thick and the sides are 1/8" thick, and it's much more efficient to cool the sides.
I am looking for drive showers right now and I'm not sure which to buy.

I like mine the way they are. Dont need anymore weight or stuff back there to clean or remove. I like being able to get them out of the way with 1 bolt.

I have one of your drive showers Paul. I run an xz at 5400 rpm and have no build up on the outdrive. The crew that I boat with have the top caps, and they all have residue on the drive, not a lot but, more then I do with none. I am all for bling, but would rather have function.
How is the cap going to hold water up longer? Is the cap edges going to come that far down the sides to go past the cooling tubes?

I could see maybe a couple more holes drilled into the Halos pointing upwards to the bottom side of the cap????

Thanks for the great feedback so far. Maybe I should have been more spacific. The top cap/cover would be sold seperatly from the Halo or as a set. It would cover the entire top of the drive and also the sides down about three inches. That would cover the top portion of the Halo that circles the top of the drive. Like I said ---- it's going to be 75% bling (as one of you called it) and 25% function. I'm guessing that it may help cool the drive by another 10 degrees. So the Halo with the cover might get 70 degrees of cooling.

I'm trying to figure out if it is just the looks of the other showers that is causing people to choose them over mine. I know that they're not better, and they cost more, so it must be that they are prettier. So I'm asking if people would be willing to pay $200.00 for the Halo with a shinny cover that would cool your drive better than the other guys and look pretty at the same time.

To me the functionality is top priority. Looks or the "bling" factor would be about 20% important to me.

That is the same thing that the drive shower from innovative marine does and has been doing for years.

The cover takes the water, sprays it on the cap and then causes a sheeting action all the way down the drive.

It also has an adjustable ice cream scoop shaped pickup rather than the the 45 degree ones that will not pick up water as well.

I've been using them on my boat for 5 years and they work great. No signs of chalkiness at all and their only 179.00

Paul,

Do you have any pictures or drawings you could share? I'm getting a mental image, but I'm not sure if it's 100%. If it's 75% "bling", it may help to visualize the "blingyness".

Check your PM also.

:ON EDIT: Since you aren't accepting PM's, you have mail.

Paul, I think the Halo works good and looks good. The top cap style IMO looks clunky.
