Experience with Dripless Shaft Seals

We had an original Lasdrop and could never get it to stop leaking. I understand they have changed owners since then and also made improvements. We now have a PYI Shaftseal on our present boat (Hinckley B-40); had it installed along with a flexible coupling, new motor mounts, new cutlass bearing and a three-blade Classic MaxProp. I would rate the improvement a definite 10 on a 10-star system. Zero problems in about 4 years of use except when I didn''t service the MaxProp as I should have (my fault, not the equipment). Also have a friend who installed a MaxProp in conjunction with a PYI ShaftSeal in his 58'' Phil Rhodes and he too is very satisfied with the expenditure. Definitely not a waste of funds. The PYI ShaftSeal rates very highly - no muss, no fuss.
