Anyone know of the pulse drive system is available for a cat? Love the idea of a rudder on a smaller cat.

Jeff,

Yes, bow lift has been somewhat of an issue. Currently I can trim up to about 80% of maximum range. Pulsedrive is sending new props with a larger diameter and different rake that should help pick the nose up a little. It's not a big problem, but I'll take a little more lift if I can get it.

I had to drop the motors so that the prop shafts come out near the bottom of the transom. I used an extension box so that the motors and transmissions would fit in the engine compartment - not much room in a runabout to move engines forward! Pulsedrive has been great to work with and have been helpful in getting the boat dialed in.

LostinBoston - If it's a twin engine cat, then pulsedrives work fine. For single engine cats the shaft angle is wrong.

I'll report back when the new props arrive.
