Re: Blown outboard prop shaft seal?

Was the unit serviced in the fall ? gear oil change

If not it is the best time as any water would not sit in the gear case over the winter

I would remove the upper gear oil plug to check the level and be sure is in fact gear oil as the four strokes are funny about motor oil when transported laying down

If it is the gearcase there are three seals

Input shaft, output shaft and the shift shaft and if your going to pay someone might as well do it 100% and be done

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
