We could see a visible "wobble" in the shaft. So now we are working to fix that.

I have someone mechanically inclined and good with engines helping me, but working on boat maintenance is new to both of us. Any and all advice is helpful.

Thank you!
Where or who straightens struts? I may have a need for that as well as a bent shaft and rudder
