I took the other way on previous boat, I installed a Volvo SD in replacement of old MD13 and shaft. no vibe, no missalignmets, no side walks, etc .. Compared to my actual boat that uses shaft, I'd say I was happier before. Volvo does recommend replacing rubber seal every 7 years. Had Yanmar 40HP with SailDrive too. Very smooth, powerfull and a best match to engine. I've used SD for 15 years, and never ever had a problem, not even heard about problems other than bad maintenance ....
