Default chalky NXT drive???

saw vee (won't post what boat out of respect for owner) with a chalky nxt drive last week. He's got 700's with nxt's. I didn't think these drives would do this. Any one got any info on why that would have happened? the guy use the wrong gear lube?

thats what i wonder. the guy doesn't beat the crap out of the boat. obviously overheating but i thought these dry sumps prevented that.

it may not actually be overheating. Other drives having an external cooling system like the aftermarket Bravo ones keep the case pretty clean because of the constant water flow on them. Pending on what water this boat is in it may not take much to chalk it up with just a little heat.

could be a number of things, depending on the mineral content of the water, each one will solidify at different temps, obviously there is some heat there, usually its a lime or calcium style. see whats in that area, ask around or check with a local water guy to see what is in the water in the lake.

I have had this happen on several Bravos. Some never saw salt water. All had showers. I attributed it to heat affecting the paint.

BTW. Salt Away takes it off nicely and keeps the black paint looking brand new.
