Is there anyway to make a jig to drill for a prop shaft.

A lot of guys use the strut as a guide but as I didn't have a strut I had to work out the angle and where the hole starts on a jig I then marked out the angle on a block of wood and drilled a smaller hole to carry the drill bit extension bar and fixed it to the keel I also used a block to stop the drill bit from walking there is also a centre line marked on the keel so I can keep the drill lined up with it. Not the best way of doing the job but it worked for me :D

We've compiled links to Glen-L Webletter articles about drilling the shaft hole on our website's Transmission Page. You'll also find a link to Dave Lott's article detailing his Riviera installation, our Shaft Angle Table and downloadable Excel Shaft Angle Calculator :
Hope his helps !
