    Default shaft strut

    so most of yall know last summer i hit a sunken tree in the bay, im looking to see if anyone knows a good site to pick up a 15 degree strut for my shaft. i know i can probably get it at my dealer but i want to look around and see if i can get it cheaper since half the time the dealers have the higher price

    Had to buy longer bolts due to flange thickness

    That's where I got my shaft. Don't know if they have struts. I'd go with Skidim or at least start there. Are you sure it's a 15 and not a 14 or 16?

    Default shaft strut

    I bought a replacement strut from Elbert's after an encounter with a dead head at 8hrs on the boat.

    The mounting surface is thicker but my bolts were just long enough....

    i think it could lead to alignment issues when trying to bolt the shaft onto the transmission coupler

    Elbert has saved me some coin over the years as I learned my way around the Willamette River finding rocks, funny you guys know about him!
