pod and boom for sailing-provide details before buying

recently purchased 2 pods and booms from here:

this is the story:
i contacted them about certain pods, and asked if they could use 28 mm motors and they said yes.
so i ordered them.
but when trying to install a 28 mm motor it didnt turn due to the inside too small. the motors i use are outrunners with the wires coming from the front.
see examples:
i tried to remove plastic but to no avail.
then cut openings at the sides to let the wires: still not enough on 1 of them. so i contacted them but they said that as i did not specify for which motor i needed the pods, they could not replace them.

so if any1 wants to buy anything from them, you need to be specific on what motor are you going to use, and include link to the product so you will not find yourself in my situation.

but still i think that when i asked if these pods were good for 28 mm motors and they said yes, they should add: "but not for motors with the wires coming from the front". then i would not buy them.
the pods are very good quality still.
end of the story

we have found out afterwards that Mr. Phil uses motor with wires on the front side to they have to be run through across the motor up to other components.
The problem is that it isn't 28mm anymore, it's 30+mm and it is obvious that it doesn't fit because of the wires. 28mm motor with wires at the back fits perfectly.
The mentioned pod is not meant for 28mm outrunner, but for inrunners.
We hope that this short explanation will help you.

Kind regards,
Nikola P.

but i think that this should be mentioned somewhere at the pod ad to avoid the problems i had.
like: "this pod is for 28 mm inrunner motors with wires coming from the rear. it is not for outrunners with wires coming out from the front".
