    I can't imagine these things having enough torque to work in any sort of mud.
    Nice setup though. How'd you go about sealing the end and attaching the prop?

    Timken seal, drilled 1/8 hole in the driveshaft and slotted the front of the prop to fit an expansion pin. Driveshaft is threaded and jam nuts to keep it against the pin. I’m only tryin to push a 75 lb boat 175lb guy and 50 lbs of gear, distance of about 1/2 mile.... time will tell..
