Catmando......
A little Left Coast Humor for Andrew
Corn, Ref. "APBA Rules"
Another person to check with is
Earel Lanier
Lanier Marine in Dania Fl.
He has a bunch of #8 Drop Boxs.
Or Better yet why not buy Chuck Norries's old 46ft Scarab with 3208
Cats and #8 drop box's.
Its still in great shape, Only problem is its in the British Virgin
Islands "Tortola".
I could get YA a good deal. Mike J.

I'm a new member on OSO and am please to see the discussion related to the Pulse-Drive. This would be a great application for our drives.
Ball park list price for a Dual Drive, 2x Huber upgraded Trans and counter rotating props for this boat up to 800hp would be about $30,000.00 with a five year Drive warranty
If you would like to contact me direct my # is 954 788 0810

If I am not mistaken with the PSI drive you can use bravo props, that would be a huge savings....

I have to assume you are NOT intending to race this boat. If that is accurate, you are on the right track. Surface drives simply offer more "drive bang" for the "HP dollar". If you are going to race there are too many other issues involved to address here.

I disagree with the post on the lack of Kaama drive parts -- Parts are everywhere. BOOT has the manual, and you can find 90% of the parts without problems. Just don't break a housing (= REAL $$$ -- still probably less than any Mercruiser product that can do the same job, though.) You can change drive rotation with trannys and those can be beefed up to handle mucho HP. Archer Marine can get you all of the parts, and there is another company in the Mid-West that reconditions and still puts these on boats. PM me if you need the name.

Pulse drives are still around and I have never heard anything bad about them.

Weissman drives look good on paper, but I don't know much about them.

Arnesons are the industry standard for surface drives, and I would think they could put together a package for any pleasure application if you hit them up right.

There is a cheap fountain for sale with surface drives - I think it would be a good candidate to part out.
