arneson skaters dont handle as well as 6 drive equiped skaters..
also.. 6 drivrs really are bullet proof providing the trannys can handle the power

Just curious , Why does he always use the engines with forward exhaust ? Wouldn't it be more user friendly to have rear mounted exhaust ? You know , Keep the flames behind the boat !!

Boot, the Lycoming engines have the output shaft on the cold end so since he close coupled the engine to the drive input shaft, the engine goes in backwards. The GE engines are the opposite and would be preferable, but they are longer, yet with a smaller diameter. It seems more people work on Lycomings. Start thinking about redoing your boat.

Boot, I just bought 4 of each. They are sitting in my garage ready to drop into a couple of new hulls. I just can't figure out what to buy. Any suggestions?
