For reference, someone was nice enough to scan an Octura catalog and post it here: http://www.pirespreto.com/newversion...a_catalog.html

Edit: OC6SBE is a skeg strut that's made for a 3/16" shafts. It's available by itself or in a variety of packages designed for different prop/flex shaft combinations.

I get mine from Gary Preusse who lives up in the Chicago 'burbs. I've got an order coming in today from him. He's not online so you have to call him at 630-279-2451.
He carries a lot of other parts also from Speedmaster, Hughey, Hi-tec, K&B and others.

Maybe, as I was planning to take that weekend off from work anyway and it isn't that far to drive. I've been looking at gas boats again and there would be no better place to see what I like.
