Default Straighten mercury prop shaft ????

I have a 2001 225merc optimax that I have taken the prop shaft out to have straighten. I live south of Boston. I am looking for a fab/metal shop to have this shaft fixed. It has the slightest bend . I was told by marine mechanic that a machine shop will be able to fix the shaft. Any and all help appreciated??

Not sure this is what you were lookin for but, The shop that repaires props around here also straightens shafts. If a prop shop around you doesn't do them, i am sure they know who does. Good luck

You should probably just buy a new shaft. I think they're $300-$400 new.

Outboard Exchange in Waterford, CT straightens shafts (or farms it out to somebody locally).

Thanks guys, I will call local prop shops first. This was for a friend who is trying to fix his boat and save some money for GAS
