Hi Andy glad to see you've made a start I'm sure you will enjoy the build as its a great kit. if you need any help just shout and I'm sure either me or Rob can help out.
Andy this is an extract from my blog provided you follow the keel build instructions it leaves a square hole large enough to accommodate the shaft, just re-read the blog I'm sure it will clear your concern.
"I forgot to publish this operation at the correct build point so here it is slightly behind. The angle of the prop shaft is taken from the drawing so it can be transferred to the brass shaft whilst in situ; the hole created by the build leaves a square hole large enough to allow some vertical and lateral movement so I can now position the shaft with the aid of the angle gauge along the centre line and set using epoxy. The underwater part of the prop has a supporting ply quadrant which will be epoxied at the same time, I use some light wedges to position the shaft and hold it whilst the epoxy sets".
