Re: direct drive

[quote=Geoff54;1220378]Sorry to disagree with you ( again ) but in this case I think the broker who wrote the ad' actually does know what he is talking about.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. Your diagram clearly shows a gear reduction unit and all your photo shows is a shaft drive which does not mean it is a direct drive.

"direct drive" is a very specific type of drive without a gear reduction unit. No production pleasure craft is built that way. For more information on what is is, try here Tugboat Society of America
