I'm a relatively inexperienced mechanic and figured I'd turn to you all for help. There is a water leak at the big nut on what I believe is the drive shaft. I had a similar leak last year and merely tightened the nut which seemed to fix the problem. When I noticed it again this year, turning the nut seemed to turn the whole assembly leading aft toward a hose clamped rubber sleeve. I don't want to go twisting things around willy nilly, is there something I am missing? Thanks

Thanks for the warning, I normally bear paw my way through stuff like this but I could see this was something not to be trifled with. I'm fine with it weeping while under power but it never ceases and my bilge has been running more often than usual so I think a bit of a tighten might be in order.
