First look at the cutout and I thought "looks like a jet drive."

It's closed cell hi-density foam. Either 25 or 27 pound density. It's the desist they make for building transoms.

Getting the drive and all the bronze parts ready to go on the boat. After all are polished they will get a good coating of ceramic clear coat.

Getting My Drive On!
The drive and hydraulic cylinders are in place. Now for more glass work then re-mount them for operation.
After everything is polished of course
The trim cylinder had to be cut down 4" in the cylinder tube to get it low enough on the transom to be below the turbine exhaust and still get full articulation for trim. Fortunately the hydraulic cylinder is excessively long with a extended bump stop on the inside. This allowed me to remove the bump stop and cut the cylinder to the correct length without affecting the 4" stroke.
