probly would work. u'd only need one joint I think so that the shaft could be closer to the bottem of the boat.

you can use cable from a control line plane for a flex shaft! post #5 http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1596831 and here's a flex shaft but I don't know what size it is: http://www.hobby-lobby.com/flexshaft...40140_prd1.htm
