Update: Propellershaft is now unbent , and in working order. But still there is the issue with orders getting stuck at warehouse.

Also is it half as warm today if I compare with yesterday.
Will try to get hull and hardware up and running before winter strikes.

Hehe unfortunately work is needed to have fun :/ but I will get cranking
with assembly.
Question how far from bottom do I have to mount stingerdrive?
And how far from center of stingerdrive to the right am I supposed to mount rudder? 2 1/2" off center ? Or is it more/less ?

Help with above questions needed....

I'm also gonna go with no teflonliner just flexaxle, 1/4 inch brasstube and grease. With new setup .187 axle , tube and stingerdrive I will be able to remove axle for easy greasing after every run.
Also a new rudder with 2 1/4 inch setback and dual waterpickups is on the way.
