Had the PSS Shaft Seal installed on my 2008 Enzo SV230 as the original factory one was leaking badly.  Quite happy with it, much drier in the bilge. Had it done in Seattle before heading to Vegas. Probably the best upgrade I’ve done so far.

I had a boat mechanic in Seattle do it. It took him about 2 1/2 hrs. They do need to unhook the V drive so it’s rather involved. I think there are some older posts on how to do it this on the site. The factory one never really kept  the water out.

You need to remove the prop and V-drive coupler flange to pull the shaft. It's a taper fit so a puller will be needed.  The rudder may need to come off to get the shaft out. Probably not a bad idea to get a shaft alignment done at the same time. And replace the strut bushings. Not the easiest job since you are upside down working in the bottom of the boat with limited access.

All the best,

Hein

      Just read your message regarding restoring your Barefoot Falcon.  I have a 1991 Barefoot Falcon with exact same floor issues.  I also had to replaced the stringers and am in the process of replacing the floor.  My question is regarding the need to replace the foam.  Like you I have several hundred pounds of saturated foam removed and I am not certain to replace it or leave it without foam.  Do you are anyone know if the foam is necessary for any structural support, or is it just for sound and flotation?
