OK I have a follow-up question. The surveyor found the propshaft is off center in the shaft log. He says it could be an issue. I’m not familiar yet with the construction of the stuffing box and how the assembly is constructed for this particular boat. The owner recently had the v-drive replaced and realigned and says the boat sits like this when it’s out of the water and there’s no issue.
I’d love to hear you all weigh in on this. I’ve included a photo.
