Default Pulse Drives-are they still in business?

Just curious, is the PULSE drive company still in business? Their web site is down. They use to have one of their surface drives on a raceboat "Afraid Knot".

I think Young Performance Marine may know where there is a used pulse drive.

Default Fraid Knot Pulse Drive

I have the drive. I pulled it off the Harry Schoell infinity in favor of a bravo a few years ago. I thought the Pulse was ill handling until I ran the bravo. Pulse drive was about 8 mph faster too.

LaudBoat,
Thanks for posting the Pics! I saw a Pulse drive for sale and was thinking about a project. I'm assuming they are no longer being mfg.? I like the simple design, and met Harry when "Afraid Knot" was racing. Thats impressive picking up 8mph over a Bravo!
F3,
Where is Young Performance Marine?
Thanks!

The one I removed I ended up sending to a guy in the Netherlands. He was installing it on a 40 Baja Outlaw with diesels. Haven't heard from him in a while....wonder how it's going.

Thanks!
In TN, just east of Nashville.

I still have 2 drop trannys for a pulse drive. They are ZF's with a 1.51:1 or 1.56:1 ratio, can't remember which. They were gone through by Huber and had some upgraded parts (shafts, clutches, etc) installed. I believe they are good to about 800 hp. Give me a shout if anyone is interested.

Beautiful boat. Is that exactly the same hull design as on Infinity's 'Bird of prey' leisure version?

The bottom is. The Bird of Prey was really neat.
