I installed 2 new Lasdrop shaft seals when we repowered last year. They have less than 50 hrs run time on them. Worked fine for the short season last year. Just ran the boat for the first time this year. About 3 miles of idling to fuel dock and back is all. Went in engine room and port shaft seal is leaking very badly. Bilge pump kicks on like every 30 seconds. Stbd seal is fine and look like new. Port seal is rusty as hell and looks 20 years old. Tried all the customer support numbers listed on Lasdrop website and no answer, just rings. And yes, this was before 5pm EST. What a PITA! Now I have to haul and replace this thing just as season was starting. Has anyone else had issues with these? Mine are the Gen II series which are supposed to be their best seals. I don't have time to wait around so ordering a complete new seal and will figure out the issue later. Needless to say but I'm not a happy camper! And yes, we got the shaft temporarily wrapped and taped up to stop the leak and clamped on a split hose hose as additional protection.
