Forgive my boating ignorance please. What makes a V drive all that? From what I have gathered its a motor a gearbox and a prop. The drive shafts connect the motor to the gearbox and the gearbox to the prop?
To the uninformed (me) it seems like an engine/tranny/prop would be the same. I have no agenda here I just don't get it. I am rebuilding a boat and thought that Jets might be an awesome way to go. Of course I dont want to give up speed. I want my cake and all... The boat I'm building is a 36' offshore boat.
I was at the Key West Worlds and I didn't see any jets on those boats that were my size. They all looked like the motor/tranny/outdrive type. Even the turbine powered boats.
Is this a size or weight thing or drag racing only thing?
Again, I have no agenda other than to learn more about this sport I love.
