The shaft log is the tube cast into the hull that the stuffing box (the thing pictured) connects onto. The stuffing box is friction fit, and then DOUBLE hose clamped to both the shaft log and the stuffing box hose.

In your case, you should be able to cut the hose laterally with a box cutter, and it will slip off.

Also note from your picture that the hose clamp that was closest to the stuffing box was not positioned properly.
