Please assist guys. I did mail kintechracing as I prefer to buy there. But his emailbox is full. My mails can't reach them.
Even if its just to get the correct inside diameter. Then I can buy the correct size stuffing tube

If you currently have one, just measure it and buy some brass tubing the same diameter. If you don't have one, what diameter is the flex shaft you're trying to use it with?

No I don't have one but figured that its parts will work well with what I want to do with my 20'' catamaran.
I'm going to buy the standerd driveshaft of the Rio 51, therefore I want the correct stuffing tube as well

What strut are you going to use with that driveshaft? The stock Rio EP stuffing tube doubles as fixed stinger.

I think the Rio flex/stub is 1/8" as well, but I'm not sure.

Even if you can find the stuffing tube, it will need to be bent differently to work with a catamaran. IMO, just get brass tubing the right diameter, it'll be cheaper.
