    Does anyone know how hard it would be to make a shaft extention for a minkota trolling motor? I have seen them for sell but they seem kind of pricey to me.I am needing to extend the shaft on mine for bow fishing.I built a deck on the front of my flatbottom so now i need a longer shaft so i don't have to bend over all the time to steer. Does it have to be made out of composite or can i use metal tubing? Thanks
