I ask this everytime a thread on showers comes up. Has anyone seen a heat related failure in an outdrive. I'm only asking because I haven't found anyone yet to say a failure was caused by heat.

BTW, I run showers....just in case.

And the ONE good thing about my OMC cobras....

With 100 ounces of high vis in each drive, you don't need showers.

I need Merc High Perf in 55 gallon drums, though.
