Default Mercury Blackhawk drives

Just trying to get some feedback before I jump into something. What do you guys think the demand is for brand new Blackhawk housings? How about complete drives? With X or XR gears? And at what price for each?

I know, lots of questions but I value the community input here!

The only person I know that had them got rid of them due to constantly breaking. How many boats have them?

There are a good handful. And when they work they REALLY work well. So that's what I'm trying to find out. How many are still in use? Me, I have a new one for my 20' Cig, and I know I want a spare cause once the boat is rigged for it not much else will work.

i think there is still a market for them Mark. Actually a friend just sent me these very intriguing pics of a single prop BH. Talk about a shorty . . . .


I believe they are from Max

Yea I think an affordable drive that you can surface and run cleavers on would be a hit.

Who said affordable? lol

Yes - more affordable than a 6 but they won't do the same job either.

I have one and know of 2 with single prop shafts There was a case for one that was for sale last year for 1250. I think the market is going to get higher and the props are getting pricey.

Boy I don't see the need but I love seeing a person with a vision run it,just always believed they were a horribly handling drive in there present state.
