I think 6ft is plenty for the skeg. I think mine was less and I liked the way the boat turned and tracked well.
My thoughts on strakes are you may not notice them much. I'm a minimalist, if its not a clear benefit, why spend the time on it. I don't see the clear benefit in this case.

Your Captain looks ready at the helm! I havent seen any of the long shaft motors get the steering cable through the motor well, they all appear to use a deck exit that I have seen. Really nice build. Good find on the windshield brackets!

Wow Rich, I have the newer, smaller book from that same author. Got it at the half price book store for not much money. Now its a $79, crazy. https://www.amazon.com/Brightwork-Compa ... 0071422773
