Re: V-drive propulsion - advantages and drawbacks?

A more compact engine room gives a better cabin area.
Checking oil level is easier.
Fairly good access to the stuffing box.
With my engine backwards the gasoline side is under the cockpit bench,
and the alternator is close to the engine instruments and panell. Perfect.
