I would call Herring as a start. I do not know the advantages but they are a pain to repair. They have had a lot of weld added and the edges are very very thin. This makes weld repair difficult. But they can be repaired. For myself, I would have a hard time allowing that much welding to be done on such an expensive piece. Aluminum does take well to that much heat it tends to soften the casting. But I am sure there are people who know better than me.

TNT sells and installs them and also does dry sump conversions. Talk with Johnny T. The only negative I've heard (not from JT) was that the machining of the case to accommodate the Hering "might" weaken the lower case.
That "might" wouldn't stop me from doing the mod.
I want to add them to my 6's because hi-speed handling is improved ( per JT).

PS: has anyone heard about the dry sump 6's having a problem with the internals rusting? Especially if the drives are unused for a period of time.

I used them on my 36 pleasure Skater that ran 180+. Worked great but didn't look too good unless you buffed them regularly after each use. But, that was before the current Mercury lower design, which is basically a copy of the Herring skag. JT at TNT can help you with this if you like. His number is 305-931-3157.

They do look like you %$^*&# up your skegs and had them repaired but they are still a couple of miles an hour faster on cats over the new Mercury skeg.
