How difficult is it to replace these seals? I found a fair amount of water in the bilge the last few times I took it out. I traced it down today and found there was a steady stream of water coming in from the shaft, nothing to end the day but enough to know I now need it fixed. I have a fair amount of DIY ability but don't want to get halfway through and realize its over my head. I too have a CSX.

Itís not too bad of a job to do provided u have the correct tools, you will need some good wrenches, a 1/2 inch drive ratchet and some large sockets
To remove the nut inside the coupler, u should b able to access the seal there the rear hatch in the floor and a good 1/4 inch drive with a 5/16 socket! You will also need to remove the prop, once u have the shaft out of the coupler and the prop removed u should b able to slide the shaft out , also a good time to look at ur strut bearings, inspect the shaft make sure there are no groves in the shaft if there are some u may b able to sand them out with some emery cloth. If there really bad replace the shaft

I looked again today after doing some research last night, was hoping for and easy fix being able to just tighten the packing nut but I can't seem to find one. Am I missing something?

The black plastic piece on the left was just spinning around the shaft when I opened it to look

That is a dripless seal.

The loose piece is probably just the rubbery cover. If it is more than that, it is the seal itself and you have found your leak. You need to observe that seal while sitting in the water and idling if that is possible.
