Ropestrippers / cutter for L450 and SD60

dear all,

Could anyone here owning a Lagoon 450 F or S, possibly from post 2015 (in case there could be any difference) confirm the installation of a rope stripper/cutter specifically on:
YANMAR 4JH57 (57HP)
SD60
WITH folded propeller

It looks like it is possible, while from only one supplier (Ambassador Marine in UK), but to be 200% sure, would be great to have real-life confirmation!
Seems this model has been installed on several boats with SD60, but for some reason cannot find a L450.

While they seems made of gold price-wise, recent FB posts on SD leaking, and in a broader view it seems a very good protection to venture into not crystal clear water area with lots of nets or traps, i see this as an almost key upgrade ... assuming it is possible.


Thanks in advance

Re: Ropestrippers / cutter for L450 and SD60

Continued the investigation, still looking for a confirmation from L450 owners.
It seems it has been done, and based on one of the below picture, may be worth it (picture is an actual SD60 from a L450 which caught a line!)

Then the other pictures shows the process to get the ambassador on a SD. Still working to see whether there is a specific problem with SD6, L450 and the flexoprops - preventing the ambassador cutters to get properly installed.
