When you say "a couple of inches", is that after a day out on the lake, after an hour, after 10 minutes? Knowing that would really help characterize possible responses.

Hey, a frozen starter and a frozen alternator are a hell of a lot cheaper and easier than a frozen engine. Congratulations, and I look forward to more pics!

I have a 210, and it's great. With 8 people (4 adults, 4 kids) it gets a bit crowded but very do-able; I'm not sure how you'd boat with the 11 allowed by the USCG sticker other than as a pure...

Unfortunately Normal, but not right. If you can't move it by hand, it means there's a lot of friction in the drive train that doesn't need to be there. Aligning the drivetrain will reduce vibration...

Supposedly there's a Schrader valve on the fuel rail. Borrow a fuel pressure gauge from the auto parts store, push it on, turn the key to "on" to prime the pump. I don't know what the specs are for...

I'd start with fuel pressure. Our boats don't have the same problems with fuel pumps as following years, but they can still go blooey.

Well, to follow up on JimN's note, look closely at the strut and the shaft log also.

The strut should be visibly straight - crouching 10 feet behind the boat, it should look perfectly straight. Any...

By the way, when you get around to doing it, you'll need:
1. New packing (unless you have a dripless seal).
2. These (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=62776) wrenches.

You should be able to turn a perfectly aligned driveshaft with one or two fingers. Using five fingers is pretty normal. Using two hands is way over the edge, IMHO.

On mine, it was on a dozen or more small white stickers applied in various places. Look at each frame rail inside, outside, bottom front to back, look under the fenders, etc.

Good luck. I don't...

Look for little white stickers in various out-of-the-way places on the trailer. No VIN stamped on mine, but probably 10 stickers with the VIN.

Is it up and down or side-to-side play, which would indicate the cutlass bearing is worn, or is it in/out play, which would come down to play in the output shaft of the transmission?

The problem is that if you tap the seal in too far, the seal lips can be up against the bearing. The portion that they'll be touching is stationary, IIRC, but they're not designed to seal when...
