Cutlass bearing

When my cutlass bearing wore out it was accompanied by significant vibrations (felt throughout the hull) at higher rpm ranges. In total there was probably 3/32" play between the shaft and bearing.

Fix it quickly! In my case the transmission burnt out while I was trying to hang on until the end of the season.
