    I'm building a small (13.3') speed boat and am thinking of building it with an inboard setup. It looks like the easiest thing to do would be to go direct drive straight out the back. Is it rational to set it up as a surface drive with rudders? This would be a totally custom setup so maybe I'm out to lunch on this one...

    I've tried to find information on the drive Tom Kane made but no luck.

    Might anyone have a link or the name of the thread where this is discussed?

    Thank you.

    Alumination, Tom Kane is a vast pool of knowledge. Look at the threads below yours and you will see his name responding to threads. Click on his name and pull up his info. Click on his thread starts and read away!

    Good luck with your project. I still plan on building one of his ideas when I get my to do list down to a respectable mountain size list.

    I've perused a few of his threads, none of which discuss the particulars of his drive.
    Might you give me a hint at the thread name where I'd find more info? :)

    I have installed Ultrafast fibre so now I may be more able to keep up to date with what is happening on boatdesign .net. I have been lacking internet connection for a couple of weels.

    There is is lot of info on internet if you google images Pivotal Drive.. Cam.A.Propulsion..Retractable shaft drive for boats. the best way is to design a retractable shaft drive for yourself it is very obvious by looking at a rear wheel drive auto.
