I have a good running 06 200, but need a 30 inch shaft, I have a 25. They apparently do not make an extension kit. Anybody have a solution?

Manufacturer ID is 1B311715 I do not have the boat at home and will check the serial number next time I am near it. Seems that I bought a boat that needed a 30 inch shaft, but was fitted by a dealer (long since out of business) with a 25 inches. Harris recommends a 30, but the dealership must have not cared. Now either the motor sits too low and gets backwashed, or the prop sits behind my center toon and cavitates

Not sure if you're still looking, but I'm swapping from 30" to 25" in late July... I will have everything (the kit) you need to do the swap probably in August.... it's fairly involved though:
1. replace driveshaft (requires complete disassembly/reassembly of the lower unit/reshimming)
2. replace shift shaft (requires pulling the powerhead)
3. replace water tube in the midsection
4. add extension section
5. replace/lengthen pitot tubing

So if at the end of the summer you're still interested, I'll have the complete kit (items 1-4 above) available.
