I cut down the teflon tubing to accommodate the new large speedmaster strut. Its kind of a long story but with the speedmaster strut and cutting the teflon tube to fit..i can still go back and use the original strut later... If i had measured it all for the original strut then needed to go to the speedmaster strut for some reason...i would have cut too much off.

I ran into a little issue with the wooden braces inside the boat for the motor mount...the pre-drilled holes for the original gas motor mounts are too far apart for my new electric motor mount...i can move the motor up close to the flex drive tube and use those holes ...but then i will have to drill holes for the rear bracket..... Or i can use the pre-cut slots for the back bracket....but then i will have to cut holes for the front bracket... I will post pics in a bit.. looks like i will need to do some cutting either way.....

even if i flip the brackets around..same problem
