Default New boat project (modification)

Yes, this is a modification (again) This is my latest one http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_9685878/tm.htm

This time, I got myself the navicraft outrage 26cc. And the speed of this thing is pretty good, and the hull is just perfect, detailed wise.

But after a little while running this boat, I saw that the need for a clutch on this thing is a must! Im pretty much solo when im driving my boats.

So, I stripped it! And figured out that this would be a good base for a huge electric motor. It's going to be a KB45-17XL 700kv with 180a esc.
The only problem that I have encountered is that I cant find a coupler from motor to flexy axle! I have looked everywhere, but no luck!

Is there anyone here that can guide me to where I can find a straight coupler. from 6mm to 6.5mm or 5mm to 6.5mm?

The motor in the boat that you see, is not the 700kv one, this is smaller that I tested with.

There is no reason to use a clutch in an electric boat. You should be able to just drop this in the water and go anytime that you want to. I don't even know where to get one if it needed it.

um, I think you have misunderstod or not read it all Original this boat comes with a 26cc gas engine without a clutch. Ergo, makes it hard to run alone.
Im quite aware that electric boats dont need a clutch.

I have tried that site, they dont have the dimensions I need. And their shipping cost is trough the roof. (for anyone that dont live in US, even if it's just a small item)

or Make your own by drilling a short length of brass/aluminum rod to
the proper diameter at each end, then cross drill it and thread the holes for
set screws.
