All struts are precision bored to meet ABYC and Navy standards for light press fit of brass-shelled rubber bearings. These interchangeable bearings are installed with stainless steel cup point set screws for a firm mechanical lock.
The length of the strut barrel (and bearing) is at least four times the diameter of the prop shaft. The thickness of the strut barrel is equal to at least one-fourth the diameter of the prop shaft. The average thickness of the leg(s) is determined by mathematical formula prescribed by the ABYC.
ABYC and Navy standards require backing plates or backing washers with four-bolt mounting, but not with six-bolt mounting, for shaft diameters up to four inches.
We take special pride in precision machining bases of all struts so the parts are interchangeable from boat to boat, and specified shaft angles are maintained.
