Thanks for posting. I am horrible with the pics resizing thing. I went with the Neutral Imco box as well. The reason for this was I heard that the stellings boxes blow the U joints out.

Hope to see you this summer out in Greenport over the summer. You have to see the boat in person to fully appreciate it. But here is a shot of the horsepower behind it!!!!

The Imco boxes allow you to use a stock Merc. rubber coupler. The Stelling box uses a solid driveshaft bolted to the flywheel. I don't have proof but I would think that the Imco set up is easier on the drives.

Imco is nice because the long drive-input shaft acts to absorb some torque load spikes; helping the drive. The Stellings allows changing the mounted height on the transom; but it has U-joints inside box to allow for that.
