Just spun the prop via the motor mount (on the prototype mount out of shims). Getting forces directed in weird ways that make me concerned for the stuffing box so I guess it's time to chop some real wood mounts finally and get on with it.

But yeah. Fixed the shafts and coupling. The prop side is now secured, and when roughed in, the motor mount can turn it by hand.

I am thrilled. Let's get an electric motor on here, hey folks?

@klardotsh Whoa nice! Do you have any details on the specs? Will you be using batteries along side?
