The shaft of my 3gmd is off on the side towards port.
That's putting it mildly...

Should I be able to loosen engine mount and move the shaft starboard a few mm
You should, but as the previous poster states, you should check your strut (and cutlass bearing) and your shaft seal (either dripless or stuffing box) too. You will be moving the entire drive line to starboard, and will need to realign the engine.

Can I do this on the hard ?
Yes!

...But on the positive side of the ledger, it looks like you don't have to worry about barnacles.
