I'm jumping into this discussion a little late but thought I would add some pictures of a Martec. This came with my new (to me) boat. It powers well, reverse is OK but I don't have much experience with it yet. It looks too complicated to me. Service under water looks to be impossible with lots of pins, shims and set screws. Gears will be prone to getting jammed up with marine growth requiring frequent diver attention. Time will tell but I would rather have a Max.
