Has anyone got one?
I thought it would be big news to see a new drive designed to overcome the problems with Volvos and Mercruisers but I've not seen anything about them.
Anyone got any user info' - (just for interests sake!)

When this drive came out I thought "watch this space" then here we are must be 2 years on now and I have only seen 1 pair on a workboat RIB that was actually at the Hamble dealer with its drives off having a new pair fitted under warranty, id imagine they will be better than the old single prop units that I have worked on, an excellent unit with no cone clutch just well engineered with its own hyd pump and forward/reverse multiplate hyd clutch that in theory as long as water cannot enter should last for years, very simple to maintain IMHO.
