Default Drive Shower's,, who has them, who's had problems ?

I Have a new Simrek drive shower (non-halo) ready to install, just curious if anyone has had problems with cavitaion, or speed loss, with this type of shower, before I drill holes in my brand new drive.. Thanks ...

I have an Eddie Marine and have prop blowout sometimes. Never done it before I installed it.

I had Simrek on our Cafe Racer,

The ones I had were adjustable, the instruction said to put them as low as you can with out experiencing blowout.

I have a Halo on my boat since 2000, and I have had zero problems.

Thanks guys,, my simrek is NOT adjustable,, it has rings welded around it to set the height.. guess I will try it and see,,, filling two half inch holes and some phantom black spray paint, is NO big deal anyway..

If its too deep you can grind or cut the bottom.

Everything is adjustable

Chris-

I had the Halo on my old A?T with no problems. I currently have the Shower caps by Eddies on the newer boat.
By testing them with a hose, I think the Simerek design does produce more water over the entire upper drive area better than the other.
I have (2) of the Simereks in the garage that will fit on MM steering with the adjustable tips. (have Imco on the existing boat).
So, if you know anyone needing the showers, or if you want to try the tips only later, give me a call, and I'll ship them to you (free).... with help an OSO brother anytime.
