Congrats..... and how did we get to this "slightly" out of alignment diagnosis? You said sea trials..... Was there a vibration and the sales guy made the diagnosis? Was there measurements taken whilst on the hard? We did haul for the survey right?

Broad statements like "slightly out of alignment" scare me. If it is just that, yeah, no rush, just take it easy. But if these diagnoses are made by "professionals" who benefit from making the deal happen I get worried. If a knowledgeable, IMPARTIAL, tech took measurements and reported that, OK.

Currently boatless but looking. Avatar is my first boat....Holland, 1965 ish.....
