Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my boat. The local store did not stock the 42 inch shaft, but the staff placed the order for me in the store. It was shipped at no charge to my home and was received on the third business day. The install was easy and it is plenty strong for my Carolina Skiff JV 15.
