Default A NAMBA 'under hull' strut for Miss Vegas?

Is there a good "under the boat" strut for a 3/16" flexshaft to use for conversion of the Miss Vegas to NAMBA Sport 20 rules? Also, how does running a prop under the boat effect the prop selection (or does can the prop actually be past the transom for NAMBA??

Has anyone already done this or a like conversion?

I don't know which strut would be best, but the prop can be behind the transom. From the NAMBA sport hydro rules:
"The propeller drive dog may be one drive dog length behind the transom of the boat."

The new strut that comes with the boat can be removed and mounted under the hull.

But the stock strut is only 1/8" isn't it and I am installing a 3hp .21 in it - shouldn't I need a 3/16" shaft?

Is there any rule on how long the drive dog can be?
