Any other inboard boat dealers in the area? A common transmission throughout the years among all the inboards for us.

You should be able to get them at a bearing supply shop, but my experience has been that you'll definitely have to have the old ones with you for them to measure/match up.

The BW Velvet Drive was used in nearly all 60's through late 80's inboard pleasure boats and a lot of comercial fishing boats. I got my last set of seals and repair parts from a marine diesel service shop - they had everything in stock. Nothing says to need to get them from a ski boat dealer.

Good luck!
