Default crapshooter

Hey guys, I just bought a old crapshooter 45 and had some questions about it. I'm putting in a cmb .45 and the prop I'm thinking about going with is a octura 1455. The stuffing tube in this boat is off center to the right about an inch. It's strait but just off center. I was wondering if that had some performance advantage or just shoddy work. Thanks

Check with Marty Davis (RCU - MartyDavis) as he used to build those boats. I'd have to guess that the 1 inch offset is a bit more than what it should be on that boat.

I have to agree with Mark, 1 inch does sound like a lot of offset. I could see a little bit like 1/4" or so to help compensate for torque but it appears that someone went a little too far.

thanks for your input guys. I went and measured it and it was exactly a half inch off. So much for eyeballing it. Anyways, the crapshooter has adjustable rails on the sponsons so if it would twist from too much torque I figured I would just widen the stance. I'm just trying to avoid tearing out the stuffing tube and relocating it. Granted it is a rigger so you want everything set up right so nothing goes wrong at top speed. But being a wooden boat I would hate to weaken it by cutting another long hole next to a prexisting one.
