I've got an '89 Ski Challenger, and I have water coming in where the drive shaft goes through the hull to the prop. <BR> <BR>Question is: Is there any info on this type of repair. I would think this repair would be fairly common? Any suggestions from anyone. <BR> <BR>Thanks for the help

Try to tighten the packing nut--if it still leaks you will have to replace it--not hard to do at all

Leave it alone. Its providing extra ballast!

I don't know anything about your boat, but the MC of that era required three drips per minute in the boat to help lube the packing. You may want to find out what you have before you tighten it up. If tightening it up doesn't work, you can replace the packing realtivly easy.
