So far they drives have not been a problem on the twin turbo engined boat I know about. It just likes to throw blades off of props. (Noticed I said blades which means it has happened more than once). In other words the standard #6 props are the weak link at the moment, not the drives.

So far the new set of props has done fine.

Hopefully all will go well from here on, as it seems like Sterling and others have put a lot of investment and work into this project. Best of Luck to them and "Keep it on the Rails!"

That might make to much sense.
