The advice I've read is that course adjustments can be made on land, but fine adjustments should be made in the water. Raising the engine so the shaft is centered in the shaft log is the beginning. Once in the water, you'll need to unbolt the shaft from the flange and then use feeler guages to look for gaps. I think the rule of thumb is to try and get it within .001' for every inch of flange diameter.
