    Question flex shaft plastic liner only Voracity

    hello OSE
    has anyone found a replacement liner for the brass tube in the Voracity.
    obviously they sell the flex shaft with a liner but is there another choice so I can use with my new OSE HD flex shaft ?

    I run an OSE cable in my stock liner.

    Leak, meaning water in the hull through the stuffing tube? Some tricks I've used on that particular boat:
    - try heat shrink or sealant at the joint where the stuffing tube mates with the strut
    - using a little more grease inside the tube itself
    - a small bit of silicone hose over the tip of the stuffing tube inside the hull, just large enough that it doesn't rub on the flex cable
    - replacing the brass bushing in the strut with two new lead teflon bushings to close up the clearance on the prop shaft
