Re: Propeller Shaft Log

It sounds to me as though you got a pretty good deal although the materials probably only cost around $100. A new packing box, tube, hose clamps etc. is about $80: PACKING BOX ASSEMBLY BRZ 1" SHAFT 2" HOSE 103450
New packing material is around $20.

Having confidence that your boat is not slowly sinking is priceless and having someone else go through the contortions to do the labor seems well worth the $450 for hauling and labor.
