My 58' Navigator has been on the hard for 97 days. Because of an unfortunate series of events including ZF having to make a pinion gear, I am losing out on boating season! Hopefully that will come to an end soon because ZF should be overnighting the gear today. After installation of the transmission, shafts, drip proof seals, cutlass bearings, and props the girl will sit in the water for 3 days. They told me that the hull needs to settle itself,out after being on the hard, before shaft alignment. My question is this: After being layed up for so long, would it be a good idea to have the alignment checked again? I was thinking of the hull turning into a pretzel after being laid up. Is 3 days long enough? Thanks for a great forum!
