  1. very useful. I have a boat with little to no hours on it but it was made in 1997. It's only been taken out on the water twice. Do i have to do any alignment if it's just been sitting there?

  2. Would you be checking the drive-line on your car every 300 hours?  Of course not! IMHO most drive-lines on boats really suck.  The main problem is that the engine mounts sag.  With most boat drive couplings this throws weight onto the stern-gland which then wears and leaks.  This state of affairs is so bad that many years ago a man who worked for Cardan invented the Aquadrive. (now copied with the Python-Drive)  

    If the engine mounts on a car engine sag slightly it doesn't matter because the universal joints will take care of the problem.  Now available for boats!

    Big ships don't have the need for frequent engine alignment as their engines don't have rubber mounts
