Re: Mirage 30 - propellor shaft strut

The owner of Mirage Co. is a long time member of my club but just left to work on his new home. I maybe able to track him down.
It would be much easier to straighten it with heat firstly, and secondly off the boat.
You can't deform the sleeve that holds the cutlass bearing, so this may sound nuts but an option is to cut off the sleeve, straighten the stem, then weld back the sleeve with the prop shaft in place to guarantee the allignment.
