Abstract : The patent relates to a marine bearing device which compensates for a shaft misalignment. No housing is necessary for the bearing since the flanges of the shaft are used as bearing surfaces and partial enclosures of the bearing apparatus. This saves space and eliminates the need for traditionally used hardware.
