Has Anybody Considered Using A Penta IPS System In A Glen-L Boat?

It Seems Like Any Interesting Setup All Be It Probably Very Expensive.

I bet that their price is out of this world. I can buy a dressed, ready to drop in 5.7 GM 300hp for $5,000 U.S. a JET FOR $4,500 OR A TRANNY AND PROP, DRIVESHAFT AND RUDDER FOR ABOUT THE SAME I bet that setup is $25,000 per. Let me know if you find out please.

Besides the expected cost of it, you have to double that because you cannot install them as single engine; they have to be a minimum of twins.
So, double the cost just to start.
