Mark's 50 was a year 2000. He planned on having it painted. So it was all white with 'Cosmic Voyager' on the sides way up front.

after working on many drives including 6s the arneson ASD-8s
are impressive and massive inside ....input shaft and output are 2.5"........2.160" where the ball bearings press on ....bearing od is 4.75" there are two 7" long sprockets on the shafts that can be changed for underdrive to overdrive with many combos for shaft speed vs prop pitch and diameter.... it makes top fuel look easy ! there is a 7"wide silent chain looks like a giant cam chain connecting the two. arnesons like to turn in and the prop shaft should be about 2" out of the water at speed(unlike most boats u keep dropping the drives as you gain speed because the boat lifts out of the water) BUT u can drop the hammer at 3000 and hear 14-71s come to life and paste you back in the seat and know the drives will not break

the guy with the 388 and 444 is a BIG SUPPORTER of ASD ( i think they even sponsor him)
Hustler had 32's , and a few , went out with them on it
mine was one of them and it was the one that the 388 replaced
his theory is that they can handle alot of power and will not break
if i had the $$$ to do a new boat and the boat would work with them i would do it
Hustler seems to be one of a few that does it
i was at they factory a while back and they were doing a 40 with diesels and a drive i've never seen before , I think they were the Weismann's. i don't know of too many others that build their product with ASD's except for yachts
Most people are doing the 6's and they are big money, i don't know what the difference in $$ between the 2 are and i understand that manuverablity(spelling) around the docks is also better
what boat are you looking at ?

ONE BAD AZZ BOAT.


I attempted to contact the "Black Cloud Boys" several times when I was setting up my 32.
No luck!
I ended up talking with Paul Fiore.
Some of my questions
Prop shaft centerline relative to bottom of hull?
Distance between props toe in or out?
Blade diameter and rake.?

Trial and error is what it comes down too.

Nortec has successfully powered some V-bottoms with ASDs. They might be a good source of info.

Rik has hooked me up more then once!!
especially in the parts department.
I owe him more then a drink or two.

Didnt realize Nortec did some Arnesons.

The more I look at this 388 in this post I,m wondering if they could
go staggered and lower the Center of gravity.
Is there room to stagger? Do they offer Staggered in the 388?

Just talked to Terry, dropping my 4300 off around 1/3/05 and will be going out on a test ride on a 50 with Yans/Arnesons, looking forward to it, I will let you guys know what I think when I get back. Jeff
