detox, I used Z-Poxy to seal the inside of the tub...on the outside, I will be applying 3 coats of sanding sealer. I am a painting contractor and have been finishing wood for years and this stuff seals and sands very nice. Much easier to sand than Z-Poxy. Next I will prime, spot fill, sand, prime, sand and then if everything looks ready...paint. Here's pictures of my Avenger/Spider that I sealed the same way...

Hi Jake,

You're stuffing tube seems to have a sharp bend in it. I guess it will work out ok though. I tried to keep mine as straight as possible with just a gradual bend to keep the friction down to a minimum .

unless your boat is a wire drive that inst always a good thing.
to have bands in your shaft is okay. friction will be there weather you like it or not. but even more friction will come in the form of cable whip if you don't have enough of a bend in your stuffing tube. bends allow the cable to rest on something rather then whipping around and doing stuff like that.

I'll go with that. When you used the wire drive, did you use the teflon liner or without?

I'm going to run the 150 cable but I might also like to try out the wire to see if there are any differences between them...

My stuffing tube has a gradual and less sharp bend. I use a .062 wire drive with Octura collet. The .062 wire rides inside 3/16" brass tubing and teflon liner. The 3/16" brass tubing fits perfect inside the Solinger strut. http://www.offshoreelectrics.com/pro...=oct-oc098t-24

Thanks detox, always good to hear your input on things. Does the wire drive run pretty freely in the teflon? I'm guessing (since I have always run just flex) that the wire will be smoother running.

Thanks Taylor, detox and Jake for all of your input. You guys make this a fun build for me!

Just not sure if I'm going wire or staying cable...The loss of stubs is losing me on that idea, but i like the freedom of the wire.

Detox, have you been losing stubshafts too?...And Jake, are you using 150 the cable on yours?

Not yet ! Rigger seems slightly faster using the wire. Maybe the .072 wire will hold up better than .062 wire?
