Thanks so very much. That's what I thought ... that it was an "inappropriate" arrangement.

The rubber hose solution sounds a little flimsy but if it works I'd be OK and would save the shaft for a better fix later on. But if it worked w a split hose it should work even better w a hose not split. Such a hose could be installed at the next haulout. When I go to sell the boat I wonder what the surveyors would think? HaHa

The shaft is 1 1/4" , wot rpm is 3000 and a 2.57-1 gear is used. About 1200rpm. It's about 5' aft to the cutlass and about 4' fwd to the trans output.
