When a dripless seal starts leaking, it means one of a couple of things:
The cutlass bearing may be shot, allowing the shaft to be slightly out of alignment.
The seal itself is just plain worn out.
Worst case: the shaft is bent.
A tip: If you want to pull the whole unit off without hauling the boat, you can plug the hole where the shaft enters the hull with the wax material from a household toilet seal. Jam a rag into the hole first until it's tight, then pack the wax around to seal it. This will hold for several days.
