That's only for when the screen door on the bottom of your boat is leaking.

Great job! Now I feel confident to tackle that job if it ever happens to my boat.

I do have the Powerslot, so not quite as much room to work but still a pretty easy repair. I replaced my packing last year with the Gore material, very satisfied with it. Just a slight drip but the shaft runs very cool.

Thanks for the documention, always good to have pictures!

Oh yeah. That hose was looking very poor on my boat as well. I replaced it when I dropped the shaft to do the bearings.
