aren't those drives overkill with the new power? won't he go faster with alphas and less parasitic hp loss thru the drives?

From speaking with scism and a few others the main advantage in swept back skegs is improved handling. This is especially true with the older, pre 01 I think skegs. Merc has obviously gone to a swept back style, with a couple of variations, but even they need work in the higher speeds. Shouldn't effect you.
I had a 99 42' fountain with dry 6's, that some jack a$$ had filled according to a wet sump. I called Fountain and talked to them about it and Jeff Harris told me they had never seen less than 3 mph increase and as much as 5-6 mph increase in going to the dry sump. Hope this helps. I personally don't think you will see enough of an improvement to justify the cost on a single, but you never know.
PS: Bird man is going to need more than newer power to hang with the E-Dockers.

What handling characteristics do the swept back skegs improve?
