Why is it every time I hire an "expert" for my boat something bad happens....

Maine! I read your "$800 mistake" thread. Am I screwed also or is there anything I can do to reverse the damage?

Also, I will be taking my propeller shaft out in a month come haulout. Is the transmission seal easier to replace with the shaft out?
