The boat has a set of Arneson ASD8 In Line Drive units, which is weird for a gas engine setup, as there is no reduction in these drive units, i.e.Typical Diesel setup.

Must have been using a set of the 504 Twin Disc or a set of Hutrh transmissions.

Someone should paint it camouflage Green and use it as duck boat!
