PSS shaft Seal Installation Facility

We have a IP420, '01, and would like to install a PSS dripless shaft seal. We are currently in Marathon, FL. Would anyone know of a really qualified yard that can do this installation - that is, a yard that has done many such jobs - not first timers. Location should be from Hatteras to Bradenton, FL. Much appreciate any leads. Thanks.

Just curious why you would need to hire a yard to do this. It isn't rocket science, and doesn't require any very esoteric or specialized tools. Maine Sail has a great article on doing just this, which you can read HERE.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I agree with sailingdog. I've done the job twice on 2 different boats and had no issues with the installation process or afterward. I also replaced the cutlass bearing, shaft, and coupling at the same time. Total time to install was about 2.5 hours.

PSS Shaft Seal

Thanks for the link... very informative.
I think a yard may be necessary as there may be some shaft damage from the existing stuffing box. Moreover, there has developed some vibration that may well be indicative of excessive cutlass bearing wear. There is also the problem of the really cramped shaft tunnel in these IP's. But you may be correct, and we might be able to make it a DIY. Again, thanks for the reply.
