Cutlass bearing replacement

Ok, it's time to replace the cutlass bearing. A search indicates that most of Fuji's yachts have grub screws to secure the bearing.

On my boat however....

The bearing sits inside a fiberglass tube. As far as I can determine there are no grub screws. There is a somewhat soft material fairing the tube to the hull. I removed a piece thinking that there might be screws underneath - no luck.

What do you guys think, just an interference fit?
