Broken shaft....and what else?

Lost propulsion in the mid-chesapeake, sailed on for 2 days without power, but that got old quick sitting outside your destination in calm winds.
Apparently, have a broken shaft in a Passport 37. Standard stuffing box set up. How bad will this repair be? and what likely caused a 1 1/4 steel shaft of break? Is it a sign of other problems
