Re: direct drive

I'd be surprised on that new of a boat that it is truly a direct drive (on older boats direct drive meant no transmission at all, you shut the engine down, pulled a lever that moved the camshaft and then started the engine again, rotating the opposite direction). I would guess they are just meaning there is no V-drive, but you never know.
