My boat came with the Norscot dripless shaft seal. This is my third boat, and if/when I buy another, if it doesn't have this wonderful little independent system I'll install it. I check the fluid level (ATF) every few months, and that's it. In the year I've owned the boat, I've topped off the fluid once. Love it.

EDIT: The shaft link above that is automatically generated by the SailNet store is not the same seal system. I don't have experience with the PSS system. I searched Norscot on the store site, but the results were zero.
