If the design has success, they certainly have powerheads available to go with more HP. Keeping a motor dry that lives in a a submerged box seems like a big task that wouldn't age well.

It can tilt out of water, on one of the sites I found it. Still would like to see how they are sealing that up.

And if it does, does it tilt up enough to remove the cowl to fix an issue without water getting in?

Yeah, because Verados are so loud and ridden with vibration issues. Game changer? Nah. Neat innovation? Sure.
