Re: Sigmadrive

Hi Artaban83,
I installed it on my sailing boat by myself and it solved my problem of engine vibration.
It 's very easy to install and to have a perfect alignment of the shaft.

Re: Sigmadrive

Hi mrnj
Thanks for your reply
Is there any maintenance requested ?
Did you sourced it directly by manufacturer ?

No maintenance is required. Just install and 'forget' it.I contacted the French dealer to buy it, named Wenex-equipment. Yesterday I found them at Multihull boatshow in Lorient.

But it does not include a Thrustblock. Has to be better than standard coupling but thrust must still cause some vibration. Prob ok with correct flexible mounts I guess.
