Shaft alignment: I've often wondered why the strut-cutlass bearing
isn't set up with a gimbaled cutlass bearing support. That would allow
easier alignment on the transmission end. Also, sail drives have a fairly
large diameter in the water to accommodate a gear case. The gimbal
would not have to be any larger. Cost maybe?
