Cardan Shaft Alignment in the Belly of a Boat

If you have read any of our blogs, you have seen we run into some unique alignment scenarios. During a recent class in a shipyard, there was a need to perform a Cardan Shaft Alignment in a boat with very little space to work in. It also required shooting the lasers through a hole in a bulkhead.

It was a challenge, but the guys rose to it and the result was an excellent alignment. It doesn’t always turn out that way, but sometimes the impossible just takes a little longer!
