Hi Sean,

I don't have any experience of the gearbox you mention, but generally shafts & props are considered more reliable/less to go wrong/less expensive to maintain than outdrives, so for what it's worth you're probably heading in the right direction.

Sounds like a plan, you may lose a bit of performance in exchange for ease of maintenance and reliability

To change to a shaft and prop, would you not need to shift the engine forward? An outdrive engine sits at the far rear of the boat, where a shaft is more mid ship??

Hi, 

moving to shaft will need the engine moving midship.

Youll also need rudder and a skeg fitting. So it’s pretty much a tear up of your hull…
