Anyone know anyone with the Yanmar's Gear Up System? Basically one engine running two shafts. The pics here shows a 440hp Yanmar with twin outdrives. A friend of mine is looking into one with twin straight inboard shafts.

Seems like it could be a headache to me.

Single screw for me.

:rolleyes: That looks real nice, I see Two univeral joints, and I bet there are two more under those guards on each side of the main housing. I wonder how much HP that setup eats? I'll stick with a single!

Manuevering was the main reason he liked it. He's had a single before and wants to go back to twin inboards.

Don't know how much HP the set up eats up but the specs were a 33ft, Deep V, 14,000lb boat getting 33mph and burning under 15gph.

I wouldn't want it, but he seems sold on it. Sucker for the sales pitch I guess.
