    Shafted?

    How many out there have had issues with snapping the stock driveshaft on their ski? If so, what have you done to prevent it from happening again?

    I've broken 2 now

    Stock lasts the longest. Alignment needs to be right, but around 22psi, or more they don't last

    Lacey makes a shaft, not sure how well they hold up on Rec boats. They run them on their race boats

    Dam first thing I can say is I'm sorry for the recent shaft issue that led to a Motor Damage ( unforeseen). I get poked at all the time about my project and it might not stop these issues but after last event where 22 men entered and 6 DNS I will take my time. I spent two days aligning my motor, excessive probably may prevent problems but ATLEAST there's no what if's

    I had a garbage SBT shaft break last time (don't ever buy one!! )
    Only way to get it out was to weld a lump on the back of it, to be able
    To grab it with pliers.
