  Two questions

Dear pilot,

What gauge wire did you use for your jumper from the battery. Reading on the internet everyone seems to suggest 6 or 8 gauge but I'm only running a 40# thrust motor. You could build a suspension bridge with 6 gauge wire.

I'd like to know more about shortening the shaft on your motor. I have a 40 inch shaft on mine I spent today fishing a local lake. I run my motor on a 15' Grumman Sport boat. I didn't even know I could get my arm into the postion I used today to run the motor. I'd rather not do it again though!
