I would recommend hauling the boat.
The problem is that to remove the shaft log hose and replace it—you have to disconnect the propshaft at some point, so you can pull the old hose off and put the new one on. If you have a problem at that point... you don't have the time to solve it if the boat is in the water, since water will most likely be pouring into the boat at that point.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
