Default Does anybody make a V bottom w/single surface drive?

Why don't I see any v bottoms with a single surface drive?
How hard will this be to make?
With all the drive problems out there a surface drive seems like the way to go!

Please add your input

I remember seeing a Hawahian(sp) or something like that about a year ago, I think it was in the low 20ft range with a single/ Arneson.

How about a 28-29 ft single engine 800-900 hp with a weisman drive or something?
Does this seem realistic?
Maybe wishfull thinking!

Hustler has a lot of experience with Arnesons. Maybe they'd put one in a 22 or 26

I know Infinity made a boat that was around 30' that had a single surface drive. There was one for sale in the main classifieds for a while.

There was also one around my area. Had a 502 and ran in the low - mid 60's.

I had an old Python 24 with an Arneson and a big block. It was a fun boat, just too old. It would definitely out turn the newer Python with a Bravo at high speed. Not to mention the cool rooster tail.

Many years ago I had a 25' Checkmate with a #6 Arneson and a Merc 420 Cyclone. The installation was a Borg Warner/Arneson prototype. Ran and handled great.
