Not sure.  When they went in to do the bellows they came back and said the cutless was bad.  I usually give it a shake at haul out and don't remember any wiggle, and still think the pic they sent was taken after they slid the shaft out to do the bellows.  then they said when they reconnected it all that the alignment numbers were off indicating the shaft was bent.  Rather than take a day off without pay, and drive 300 miles each way and get a hotel room, or drive non stop round trip, I just paid the price.  I did tell them to leave the spares including the old shaft.  but in the future, I'll be retired and able to spend the time doing more things for myself.  Pay to play, I guess.  :shock:
