Holding a dial caliper on the shaft, while slowly turning it, will tell you if it is bent

I take you mean a dial gauge (DTI) not a dial caliper - or am I missing something?

It's tough to try to use a gauge on the shaft when it's in the boat. The right way is to get it out and set it on two sets of bed blocks (you can make them from any sturdy metal wheels, even old roller skate wheels will work) with a stable, moveable platform for the depth gauge. Then you can rotate the shaft on the blocks and check it for deflection all along its length, including the taper and the keyed section that enters the flange.
