Good advice from Stavros there....


I had to change the position of my prop shaft last week (we won't go into why :embarrassed: ) but I got a block of wood drilled it just so the prop shaft pushed in with a tight ish fit, glued it on the boat and then filled the shaft inner with grease and the outer shaft with resin. I then pushed the shaft into the hole and smoothed the excess resin.


You can see all the photos of how I did it on page 2 of 'Lena, my first boat build' thread.   Hope it helps. U2
