Re: Emergency leak repair

An old salt told me to keep a can of that expanding foam sold in hardware stores in case my boat gets a propeller shaft tube leak/shaft seal. Supposedly, you should jump overboard, swim underwater to the propeller shaft tube entrance, and shoot the stuff in the propeller shaft tube to stop a leak.

I am not yet convinced to buy the stuff...
