Re: Shaft housing question -- galvanic corrosion?
It sounds to me like the surveyor is noting a potential long term issue. Typically if it's something of immediate concern they would give a deadline(eg. before use, within 30 days etc).
Next haulout to me would be the spring, unless you're planning any long trips. If it's single clamped right now, could you perhaps had a 2nd more appropriate hose clamp to each of the joints (for a total of 4 clamps), then switch the bad ones out for two new ones, staying at 4 total as required by insurance.
