    Good morning guys,
    Since the strut placement rule change for Sport-40/Q-sport hydro.
    When mounting the strut on the transom vice under the hull, where are you placing the leading edge of the rudder in relation to the prop?
    Those that are running transom mounted struts, are you using the extended struts or not?

    Thanks all

    Phil Thomas and Speedmaster suggested I run and extended Rudder. It works fine. I’ll post pics of my setup tonight. I can’t remember the Rudder part number.

    So it is OK for the leading edge of the rudder to be in front of the prop? Will it work OK on a mono/deep vee hull?

    Thanks,
