Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

I should add that we did an engine alignment when installing a new prop shaft and coupling back in October. From my notes, the opposite corner was raised 5mm. That was probably 125 engine hrs ago. I'm thinking that may have something to do with the stresses that caused this eventual failure.
