sorry it isn't 3/16 haha go figure, its .200, what an odd ball size

yeah thats why ill never buy a venom boat ever. but i will tell you that there props fit tighter on the shaft than the one that comes with the boat. i feel the same way. but i rather jack up this boat than a name brand boat. on my hydro i changed out all the hardware to run 1/4 everything cause i wanted to use any prop i wanted.

I have a quick question regard the stuffing tube and the gap needed for the strut, how much gap would be sufficient so I can adjust the strut so the boat can be trimmed?

I'm surprised that nobody has commented on the turn fin yet. Generally, Cat's don't need them.
