It may be the gimbal and/or the u-joint. Neither part is expensive, just labor. (lot if it too).

They were both "changed" when I purchased my boat. I don't trust the mechanic. I did not pay him and the previous owner had the work done. I still have a vibration especially when I turn right. I did pull the outdrive off and check the alignment. It was perfect. The u-joint looks new but I don't know what else would be causing the noise. Good luck. I think the parts were about $200 and the labor was $800. I hope it last through this summer and I will swap them out next winter myself.
