    has anyone designed, built, a motor to prop shaft coupling or do we all use the usual'red' ones. Any thoughts, designs most welcome.

    I often use good old silicone tubing to connect the two shafts, Roger...as long as it's a tight fit on both ends there's very little chance of it failing.

    I have used silicone tube on some quite powerful motors in the past...if you keep the piece of tube as short as possible, you'll have no problems.

    Plus of course, it's cheap and easily replaceable...

    I prefer not use any coupling i.e straight through but otherwise the "red ones."
