I think that guy just has an old Berkeley TA and an old hamilton or buehler or some other axial flow pump laying together, not to mention the v drive stuff.

Now here's an old Berkeley for ya!

heres some more pictures (which i stole from another site  ;D) of the pooper pump....









How it works:

From what I understand is the 'toilet seat' lookin part moves left to right to steer, but im not quite sure how reverse works. It almost looks like the 'toilet seat' drops down so the jet is hitting the 'ribbed' part of the 'toilet seat' just above the jet outlet and the water redirects down the sides and to the curved part directing the water flow in the reverse direction.  ???

Its amazing how the engineering of the berkeley pump reinvented itself to todays much simpler/efficient design

It looks like it would also move the motor more twords the center of the boat , wich I would imagine helps with the getting on a plane aspect.
I want one!! ;D

Taco'd "a person or people that show up with one lake lice and a family of 50 and cram 3 people at a time on it with no disregard to boating rules or ethics. Usualy crap in toilets and throw shit paper in trash cans. Hang out at the boat ramp like its a swimming hole. Have zero insurance on anything they own and dont give two shits less about your property."
