Look at the oil color also - if it's milk chocolate, then you have water intrusion which is overfilling the pan. Not good.

I've been confused by the same thing. I measure without screwing it in, but am unsure if that's the correct answer.

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...

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.

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.

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.
