My shaft grew 5" in 30 minutes

Hehe, couldn't resist the title. Anyway, just swapped my short-shaft for a long-shaft I picked up for beer money (to be fair it was $150 but I drink a lot of beer). What an easy job to swap it over, and once I change the gear oil, hopefully my problems with cavitation and sucking air when someone goes forward will be gone. Should also help with stopping/reversing, and the gearchange is much more positive now which is a bonus. I'm quite pleased with myself

Good for you... and a good deal too. I'm sure you'll really appreciate the improvement.
