Re: PYI PSS shaft seal bellows replacement on Crealock 37

Thanks for the replies.

Regarding the age of the shaft seal on my boat - at least 10 years, maybe 20+. My boat was built in 1989. I am the third owner (five years) and I am sure that the second owner (also five years) did absolutely nothing to the boat except pay moorage. Thus my guess is that owner No. 1 likely added the PPS around 1993, the same time that he added the Max-Prop. The currently installed bellows appears in good condition, actually - no leaking. Once I get it off I will be able to inspect it closer. PYI includes o-rings and setscrews with the replacement bellows.
