Thanks for the info John.
The newer 22 has slightly different stringer/strake spacing and I believe the 009 has the drive set a little higher; probably still similar enough.

Thanks for the input. For me a speed increase is not the primary goal.
I would like to get rid of the torque steer at higher speeds; it's a bit risky with the stock cable steering I have.
