I am having a workshop clearout at present, and have just come across one of these drives from the 70/80's.

It was originally installed in an arrowshaft hull, but it never got an engine and never hit the water. 

Unfortunately the Arrowshaft is long gone, but I shall have to decide what to do with the jet unit
