Re: How often do I need to replace my cutlass bearing?

I had the cutlass bearing replaced after only 2 years from when the boat was brand new. The yard manager came by at haul out and grabed the prop and said there was some play in it and while I had a hard time seeing any play I told him to go ahead and replace it since the cost was under $100 if I remember right. I was not there to watch the replacement, but I don't think he removed the shaft. Not sure how it was done since there is no strut involved plus there is no clearance to use that tool in the above video. It's probably time to replace it again since that was 20 years ago.
