OK, but you will have to be more specific on what type of ship/boat you are looking to install it on. Some boats you have to fiberglass it in and some you can get away with installing with an iso-pad.

Ok,

The easiset way for something like that is to use an iso-pad, available from Warehouse Hobbies in Florida. You would simply drill a hole in the transom about 1/2 of an inch from the bottom, slide the stuffing tube through the iso-pad, put some silicone on the bottom of the pad and slide the whole assembly into the boat. Thats it. The nice thing about that is that if you ever wanted to remove the stuffing tube to replace it you can. Contact their website for the skinny http://www.whobbies.com/index1.html

Nice tip Pete!

But, as the wizwithnoname states, he's new at this, so he should know that he needs a strut behind the boat to take the load from the prop, otherwise his propshaft will be pushed into the boats backside...

Regards, Jan.
