Re: 1.5 mm play in prop shaft

My opnion for what's its worth is it will be fine. Obviously better to have no play but it wont get worse from here. I just motored approximately 800nm with the cutlass worn. As other's have said find the engine and props sweet spot so that it is as smooth as possible.
