OMC Saildrive 15 hp

The OMC Saildrive is 15 horsepower, but its my understanding that the power head is a 30 or 35 (can''t remember) with a smaller carb. Its certainly much larger than any 15 hp power head that I''ve seen.
My saildrive has the water pump located on the driveshaft under the powerhead. I''ve never heard of the seperate pump set up that is described above. What runs it? Is it electric? It sounds like a retro fit to me. I don''t think the models of OMC Saildrive are very different.
I really like the idea of the Honda Saildrive in a boat under 30 feet. What does a 25 footer need a diesel for anyway?
