    Default Gotta Love Those Surface Drives

    Those things are quite impressive... Had a chance to test drive one recently... can't find anything negative to say about them except that I don't have one yet. Looks like they are a pretty good match to me. Pike look great too!

    Default how much ?

    What does a surface drive like that well for retail?

    Are there any "down" sides to one?

    Do they steer easily?

    It looks heavy?

    What kind of GPH do you get at say 3/4 throttle? 3 mpg is pretty good....

    Too many people asking questions when you're at the boat ramp or filling station.

    Do they steer easily?
    As easy as any tiller steer.

    It looks heavy?
    265 lbs

    about 2 GPH at 3/4 throttle.
    That was 3 GPH not 3 MPG. It gets about 7 MPG.
