With 2- 575's in it will the stock drives live in sometimes ocean waters and some inland? Driver is very easy on equipment.

That option would come with XR drives, I would think you would be OK driven smartly. That boat only weighs 9,300 LBS in the twin setup.

Remember the guy from Texas with the big Nortech? he had all kinds of XR problems- lots of wetted surface + heavy boat + blower torque are tough on drives, regardles of how gentle someone is. Kind of like having a superduty tow rig, towing the same boat, gently but with a 8.8" rear axle- just a bad application. I can bet someone can run the s/n's to see if there has been any warranty work on these.

This is a new boat and yes I do remember the Nortech post. It's what got me thinking about the Baja and it's drives. I'm sure the Nortech is much heavier but it also had 3 props trying to get it on a plane. The Baja will have to depend on two props.
