Sail Drive

Does anyone have any knowledge of the Saildrive 280. I am thinking of repowering my Lancer 29 with that motor.

Saildrive 280

I have a friend who installed one in a 30'er and he says it was easy to install and runs real good. It's basiclly a 9.9 beefed up with a modified lowerend. You just have to keep an eye on the zinks they go fast being aluminum. They will not take a lot of dock time. They need to keep moving. They're popular on some Cats.

One more thing

Being in the Saltlake I'm not sure it would be a good idea unless you haul out every time.

Repowering

I had am OMC sail drive in there for yearsbut it finally gave up the ghost after 2 seanson of pouring $$$ into it. I now have a Mercury 9.9 out board on my stern. It's ok and I am not having problems with it so until I can move to some real crusing grounds I guess I'll stay like I am..
