You are doing the right thing, I would next take the shaft to the shop
to see if it spins true...recheck the prop one more time. And go from there.

Curious, how is the engine mounted? Hard or soft mounted?
Where are your rear motor mounts on the tranny or engine?

Check you alignment before you haul the boat. Did you hit the bar hard to where the engine could shift?

Is it possible you have a broken mount that you didn't notice?

If you haul out,before you pull the shaft,clamp a strait edge to the rudder so it goes to the end of the shaft to give you a reference and spin the shaft by hand.Kind of like rolling a pool stick on top of a table.

If the wheel is good it sounds like you may have bent the shaft near the coupler. I would pull the shaft and have it check with the coupler attached. This will also make sure that the coupler is faced to the shaft. lastly if you know the two blades were bent and corrected, did the wheel get damaged again on re-install when the wheel was blocked to tighten the nut and are you sure that you are not riding the propeller keyway on the re-install of the wheel?
