Default Surface Drive Gif

This is an animation of a surface drive I created in AutoCAD. It is full 3D CAD work.

I hope this works

Looks like the rudder has enough leverage to rip the drive off the transom.

I'm not finished yet... the transom plat is getting bigger and the rudder is getting smaller..... the thing is the difficulty of actually making something like this and the turning it into a gif.

I do this in my spare time, so I can't practice much.

Post the .igs file and let us play with it (or torture it).

sounds doable, no skeg to guard prop not a good thing for the prop, But is a good thing for top speed

I have it in AUTOCAD 2004 right now 3d rotated
pretty neat Idea
