I wasn't saying that they would vary within a standard production line... but if the boat, like my friend's Alberg 30, has been re-powered, the shaft and such may not be the same diameter as the original.
Many sailboats are old enough that they may be on a second or third engine... and in the case of my friend's A30...the rudder and prop aperture had to be re-built after an accident while on the hard. Even Robert said "standard shaft size", which makes an allowance for a non-standard shaft being a possibility.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
