    Default Any Interest or Plans From SEI

    To make a shorty lower (example: 2" shorter) for the Alpha drives ?

    There is quite a large amt of people with small 'speed boats' that are in need and want of shorter lowers. Many raise the drive and engine, however, with the cost and labor involved, many more do not.

    Small speed boats typically have low x dimensions because of the lack of room for a more raised engine/outdrive.

    Surely, with your manufacturing expertise and cost conciousness, you'd be the one's to be able to pull this off.

    What do you think - a possibility ?

    At this time we have no plans on coming out with a shortened lower for the I/O drives. Currently our efforts are directed at the release of our line of outboard lower units.

    I would also be interested in a shorty lower for the Alpha or an SS copy complete drive. I'd buy one tomorrow if available.

    the alpha ss and the performance shorty outboard lower are basically the same unit,could kill 2 birds with one stone..

    I'd be very interested in a shorty lower for my Alpha drive on my Donzi. Used Alpha SS drives on the donzi.net forum's for sale section are sold pretty much the same day they are posted. There are a lot of small performance boat owners with Alpha drives that would be welcome buying a shorty Alpha and avoid the added expense of buying a Bravo, Imco shorty lower, and a transom assembly.

    I am also interested in a shorty Alpha. A shorty Bravo lower would also pull some huge interest.

    Seems that a shorty would be better to offer than outboard lower units. No one seems to work on the old outboard engines anymore, around here anyway. At least I/O's are basically regular engines so it is easy to find parts and mechanics.

    A shorty Alpha is really in demand on all performance boat sites. If SE would manufacture a shorty, would of bought one yesterday.
