Mike,
It seems to me that some Imbalance is vibrating your P bracket loose. I had this problem when I first bought my 300. It was caused by the totally knackered folding prop. I had the P bracket secured, fitted a Geared Gori folder and luckily have had no further trouble.
You may find it easier to discnnect the shaft from the gearbox. Jack up and block the engine, and pull the shaft out forwards, having taken off the prop first.
Most of the hard work can be done afloat, removing the prop, sliding out the shaft and checking that it is not bent etc must be done once the tide has receded. This way the rudder does not have to be removed.
