hi stavros you said the gears striped on your drive unit. The unit you have was made for the model seabex1 if i am not wrong. This unit was delecet at the best of times, but since then graunper have made a new stronger unit . They rec there 720 tourque motor for it so you could use  your protech unit.

Well it could spin continuously in its own length and it pushed my Northsider along sideways, and the bow wave was quite impressive. Shame about the drive problems later.

It lives .....I think stripped down the drive unit today only to find that there was some 10mm play between the prop and the drive peg so me has concluded something has broken or fallen off so the bottom cog was moving away from the other,so made up the difference with washers!!!well had to use something so testing will probably take place on Thurs in the bosses pond,ssshh don't tell him
