English term or phrase: mixed gear/chain cam drive system
This regards a the motor of a motor boat: "Compactness has been achieved by off-setting the crankshaft and the driveshaft. Thus, a MIXED GEAR/CHAIN CAM DRIVE SYSTEM can be used." Many thanks!

Explanation:
I presume that this is a double OHC engine, where one camshaft (usually for bank 1) is driven by the chain and the other one (bank 2) is driven by a gear mounted on the other camshaft.
