easily..obtain a dead level shaft angle that is absolutely parallel to the bottom of the boat at shaft heights starting level with, above, or below the boat's bottom. You cannot do this with an Arneson. This feature allows you to trim positively or negatively...... the Arneson allows only variations of negative trim. That is a limiting factor IMHO. The sterndrive is also more compact and responsive in low speed turning/docking

If the number 6 is mounted so high on a catamaran how does that apply?

That certainly looks parallel to the boats bottom to me.

That would be some 36% more torque than a 525 makes.

Is there a website, and how much longer before they are available to the public. Thanks Jeff
