Mercury OBs did that in about the early 60s. No cams involved of course but the obvious happened often enough that very shortly they went back to gears for reversing. But now w electronic ignition, fuel injection and computers they could possibly succeed at it.

Yes, Ruddy was a fellow board member and a good friend of my best friend in that circle, Bill White, who was the shipwright for the organization and now lives on Lopez. We had some fun with those boats for a few years.
