We have our 41OI in glades,very helpful folks. Call Don Shuler about your cutless bearing. 941-744-6503. He's in Port Labelle. They are good people. If you see them tell them Sea Dancer set ya.
Good luck Steve

Thanks guys...and as a former infantry Marine, profanity is not a problem!

IIRC, Cutlass was a brand of cutless bearings and typically, it is accepted spelled either way.

I just replaced my cutless bearing (it's cutless and not cutlass so I've been told). It can be a royal PITA if you don't have a prop puller and very easy access to your shaft coupling. There are a ton of sites that describe the process. If you're not starving to death and can afford it, have it done by somebody who knows what their doing. The Idiantown boys aren't bad, but it's not rocket science either. You'll need to get updated on your profanity to do the job right!

I would recommend measuring it, since the boat may have been modified from stock.

Sometimes the cutless bearing sticks out past the stern tube....if the water is clear you might be able to see if yours does. Then you have to get in the water and measure the OD.....or call someone with a boat like yours and ask them. A user group maybe? It could still be different though....best to measure your own.

No strut and thanks for the tip on the diameter.

Shaft size will give you ID.... do you have a strut?

Need to find the size of cutlass bearing I need as I want to have it on hand when I haul out. Any help?
