Surface drives any other into them?

Been surfing around and finding information about them and the more I read about them the more I start to like the idea.
Seems Europe has a fair amount of suppliers, There´s ZF with SeaRex, Top System with their own, FB design and Saro tunnel.

Others been looking into Surface drives lately..now that the Arneson patent is out seems manufacturers pop up everywhere !?

A friend of mine, Kai from Hamburg is taking delivery of a Hustler 344 Cheetah with twin 525´s and arneson drives. His boat will be on show at Miami, next week, and then it will be delivered to Germany. It is good for 98 mph, maybe there´s more - they said!

Has to be some more as there´s stated that a Cheetah with 500 EFI´s and XR drives runs 92 mph.
Got to be 98 knots.
There´s one Scarab 38KV here with Arnesons and Blower engines reported to run 80+ knots.
Been on sale for ages.
