Just this past weekend we hit a floating log and instantly the rattle and shake occurred when going over about 10mph. I figured it was the prop but when we took it out of the water the prop looked fine. I think it may be the shaft. Everything looks fine, so I dont know. Anyone have any thoughts? Anyone bend their shaft before?

Chances are it is the prop. Shafts can and do bend, but infrequently. Spray some lube into the cutlass bearing and rotate by hand. You can use a long rod to show shaft bend by letting to rod ride the shaft and looking at the end pulse.

You may have bent the strut. Check the prop, strut, then shaft in this order. least expensive to most expensive.
