We extend to you a cordial "WELCOME ABOARD !" Come on in, make yourself at home, we are a friendly group of enthusiasts, and we also appreciate the classic Chris Craft Roamer, Corsair, and Lancer boats too , as they are all on the same family tree and share much in common ! Just start by posting a note introducing yourself to the group, that's all it takes here (we don't ask for or retain any personal information here, because our intention is to just "have fun and share information".
I konw this is a really old tread, but I had never seen an eaton drive like this, however I do have a 16 foot '60 or '61 Shepher inherited from my father that has a Mercury Mercruiser II with a Buick 215 all alluminum Grey Marine FireBall V6 (160HP)that rotates 180 degrees like this Eaton drive, Shepherd called this boat a "combo drive" and I've seen some people refer to the drive as a "helicopter" drive. Only in the last year or so have I been able to start finding info on this boat/motor & drive.
Would you have any insight on either the boat and or drive?
