I've heard stories of people using the propshaft as a lever, and bending the strut back into alignment. Others have removed the strut, oval'ed the holes, then reattached it using the propshaft to hold the strut aligned with the shaft log while the screws are tightened and the adhesive cures.

It's your boat, you can make the choice. Personally, bending the strut back to alignment gives me the willies. I'd probably buy a new strut if it were my boat.
