You are laughing. The Beta marine should have been installed with easily adjustable engine mounts. Not the brass/steel shim sets commonly used for the A4 and Grey Marine set-ups. Auxillary alignment is like front end alignment on a vehicle. A pot hole can affect the vehicle just like a shaft wrap can affect the boat engine alignment. The most perfect alignment you can achieve will pay back mucho benefits in drive train durability. Take your time and do it to perfection.

I would be very surprised if a rope wrap could twist the engine around on its engine mounts. But it's certainly something I will have to look into.
