drive shaft replacement on repower
I am repowering my boat with a Yanmar engine, which happens to be quite a bit shorter overall than my Westerbeke 107 with a silk drive. My question is
Can I make a short "dog" shaft to take up the difference between shaft and gearbox. I don't want to change it because I have a beautiful Monel drive shaft that will serve me well for at least another ten years. If anyone has any input on this, please feel welcome to jump in.
