Looking more carefully at the SK and the MC2X I'd say that both gyro systems are in fact not comparable. Besides the price there are so many differences that you should look at both systems and then decide what to do. But having deep pockets might make the choice simpler.

The dealer in NL has sent me some pictures of the "build in"of a MC2 X in an Azimut 64 (35 k kg). You can see how the basis is laminated to the bottom.

No Mr Twisted Tree, nor with Seakeeper. Just trying to keep the Forum members informed and trying to answer questions before they arise.
For commercial activities (like advertising one's boat) there are other parts of the forum which one can use.:whistl ing:

The good news is the unit can be shut off , allowed to spin down and its usefulness can be observed.
