Different trip on the Potomac River right outside of DC. Outer bell housing just snapped in half; no impact, no lower, no prop damage. It just came apart & drive was suspended by bellows and steering rams. Fortunately no bellows compromise and only a few hundred yards from the ramp. I felt the steering get heavy and sluggish about 2 miles from the ramp. I got within a few hundred yards and came off plane. Everything looked fine with a quick peek over the transom. When I tried to get on plane again, the drive shaft just slid right out. I am fairly certain it snapped a couple miles back while on plane and the prop thrust kept the drive shaft fully in the coupler.
