It is some of the most out of control boat racing you'll ever see . They have a passenger that really doesn't do anything as far as I know .

Also I dont think they are v-drive either . More of a direct drive , I think . I really dont know . I'm just guessing here. Can someone correct me please.

Cant really see why with the motor in the front that you would need a V-drive.
I'll have ot agree.
Ding ding...Circle gets the square!!  ;D

Here's a better picture of the drive system.  What we can see here, is the 'front of the engine' (in a car) . In this application, the power is taken off the radiator side of the engine. Below the water pump is the chain-link flexible coupling, connecting the small block Chevy 283 crack shaft to the prop shaft.

 A flexible coupling is never a substitution for proper engine alignment. But a hard coupling between two rotating shafts, no matter how perfectly aligned, would be a destructive idea, to say the least.

 The aluminum cage bolted to the engine block mounts a radial pillow block which accommodates the rotation of the prop shaft (backside of the cage plate). A thrust bearing and and shaft collars are on this side of the plate to transfer thrust to the engine block - not the crack shaft! (Achem, original builder!)

 Finally there's the stuffing box as the prop shaft exits the hull.

Guess yer right...it's a direct drive. Kinda weird that it connects at the front of the motor.

Heres another guess . The motor sitting that way has something to do with the rotation of the prop and engine torque . Just like a K-boat. Both are driven off the front of the motor.

'Cause of the direction the motor twists under torque?
