December 18, 2016 Update

Seasons’ Greetings from SeaDrive Systems,

We have been very busy for the past year working on various design aspects as well as consulting with interested parties about their needs.

Current activities include the installation of a stronger fiberglass bottom on the hull of our Montauk (Boston Whaler) test boat.

We have a new custom built transmission on order which is expected to arrive in Florida by about December 29, 2016.  The previous transmission had a gear ratio of 1:2.  The new transmission will increase that to 1:3, with the RPMs (and speed) to significantly increase.

Our test tank has been completed.  When the transmission arrives, each SeaDrive unit will be tested before being installed on our revised boat.  Test results will be published once the tests have been completed.

We are planning on our next in water sea trials to occur between late January to mid-February 2017 at the latest.  Lots of work to still be done before then, but we are confident the results will be worth the wait.  Date, time and location will be published once we complete our internal tests.

All the best for the holidays,

James
