D. Mercury - how have the center gear cases held up over the years? referring to a comparison of a triple rigged 32' or 28' that has unprotected gear cases on the mid engine that just take an ABSOLUTE beating....

David,

You need to bring the boat back out to LOTO. We bought a place on the water- Rue and yourself are welcome to join us anytime.

thanks Dave, I think there’s more speed to be had if I could get the hook out of the rear running surface. Just not enough time to devote to it lately.
didnt want to ask if there’s a chance you’d have time to think about this. Notice how unusually flat it flies at 122.

Hi Joe, that’d be great sometime. Congratulations on the new lake house! Thanks!

sorry for delay in reply, the 2 center gearcases I would say are semi protected with slimmer pods that Dave a Sikorski fabricated for me awhile ago. I also added some aluminum pod extensions to lessen the blow when coming off plane. I mostly boat on a small lake in central Ohio where rough conditions are rare.
It’s not a good test compared to offshore use.
There has been other trauma for those center gearcases in the way of hitting submerged lumber that caused extensive damage to props, propshafts and skegs that I’ve had to turn to Craig Collabella for mercy.
The good news is Craig set me up with some brand new cases and BBLADES with resurrecting the bent props.
i am hoping to get the Skater back out before the end of the season and see how it is all affected.
