Transmission works, forward and reverse. Cant stop it with my hand at idle and no dirty neutral at all. We'll see how it is under load, could be a whole different story.

Getting the final alignment done over the next night or two (I know, I'm slow, but I'm busy) . There is virtually no shaft play at the prop end despite the shaft wear.

One reason I am hesitant to replace the shaft if not absolutely necessary is that I am running in shallow and somewhat unfamiliar waters. Dont plan on hitting a sandbar, but if I do I would rather do it with an old shaft than a brand new one.

The lower Colorado River is not like my good old lakes back home, but this is home now so I will make do. I'm certainly not gonna buy a jet. I see wakeboard boats out there all the time, if they can get by I should be able to.
