Engine alignment

Greetings and Happy New Year to all.
Looking for info on aligning my engine (universal 25, 3cyl. installed in 1963 Pearson Alberg).
Last year a good friend helped to remove engine, rebed the mount plates and reinstall with new mounts. With rough measurement he said it was "pretty close" to aligned. I think it would be a good idea for a professional to do it. Anyone know someone good in the Connecticut shoreline area? Also any guidance or opinions would be much appreciated!

Re: Engine alignment

Have a look at this thread: How to properly align the shaft
Especially the link that Snowpetrel posted.
Even if you get it done professionally, there is good information in his link.
