see how it is way over to the left side of the strut
Harmonics can build up from a shaft that is WAY out of alignment and break the shaft
This happened on my friends Epic..twice! The shaft was out of alignment at the transmission which caused it to wobble weird or something and over time it snapped the shaft off in the transmission. The second time was at Lake Powell and we were in 200' of water and the boat just started filling up. Luckily the Epic's have dual rudders and the prop got lodged against the rudders and he was able to dive in and put the shaft back in place and tie it there and keep the boat from sinking. Hard to believe that anything could snap one of those shafts but it happens.
Get the alignment fixed or it will happen again.
