I wouldn't recommend that anybody spend the money to retrofit a surface drive to a single engine Bravo V bottom. If it was a 36 Nortech that was rigged with Bravos then sure, look at Arnesons or #6's but not on a 28 Scarab. Even if you replace the drive 2x a season for the next 3 years you will be $$ ahead staying with a Bravo style drive. I personally would recommend the Imco's. I have a pair on my Warlock with three seasons. I have replaced the gears once in the port drive.

We've got them on a lot of single engine boats, even a 28' Scarab. This is nothing rare. Our first boats we used as test boats back in the 70's were a 18' V Hull and we went forward from there.

A lot of peopel seem to think that Arnesons only work on Cats, but think about it, 90-95% of boats in the world are V hulls. We have far more V hull applications than Catamaran applications just purely b/c they are the most popular boat made around the world.

Google IMCO. Go two one of their websites, or talk to who sells you drive parts or who services your drives. You can also find one in the classifieds. I think there is one or two for sale right now.

Too much. I think an Imco SC is about 12k.
