Water leaking where shaft come in boat

I have noticed my boat has been filling up with water while I am out sking. I pulled the rear floor panel up yesterday when I took it out so I could look if it was leaking where the shaft was coming into the boat. As soon as I dropped it in the water, water stared coming in around the shaft really fast. Is this a bad seal or does the nut just need to be tightened? It's coming in between the nut and the shaft? help. 1993 prostar 190

Could just need tightening. Two spanner wrenches make the job easier. Tighten until you get a drip or so every 15 seconds. Someone else may chime in with a more accurate drip versus time period. You definitely want a few drips as this is what cools and lubricates the shaft. If you don't get good results snugging it up then a packing change will be necessary. Several great articles on here detailing how to do that.

Atleast its in a prostar. Getting to that seal on a tristar is a nightmare.

Fixed,

Tightened it up and it's good as new. Have it set to drip every 15 seconds.
