Hi, we have an aquadrive as well. Have you disconnected the aquadrive, and then, later the prop shaft end to ensure where the noise is originating?

Obviously, whatever is causing the whining is giving you warning. I had the far end (prop shaft end) bolts come away earlier this year. That sounded like a cement mixer full of stones. It warped the prop shaft a bit and obviously the cutlass bearing needs looking at when next out of the water.
