Don't forget that aligning the engine to the shaft flange is your last step. It really is an important step, though it is a huge PITA. Free up all the engine mounts (again NeverSeeze) and make sure you have whatever tools you'll need before you begin. If you've had any noise from the drive train, under way, you'll be surprised the difference the alignment makes.
Is aligning the drive train something best done in the water? I know the shape of my boat changes just a bit when it is sitting on keel and stands in the yard ( the head door won't close till I'm back in the bay).
