Thanks for the suggestions.  I will certainly consider the Gore packing.  One more opinion question.  If you were to choose between a flexible coupling or a new shaft, which way would you go?

Yes, I will be installing a PSS shaft seal.  Im pretty sure the coupling will need to be removed, so I was going to go ahead and remove the shaft to make the cutless change a bit easier.

Thanks for the replies, however, I was misunderstood.  I will need to remove the shaft from the coupling that has been attached for 25 years.  Do you think it will come off?  I keep reading about people giving up and just cutting the shaft off the coupling.

I am planning to replace the cutless and shaft seal this winter. Has anyone been successful at removing the shaft without cutting it?  Or do I need to plan on replacing the shaft too.

Hey guys!  Just joined the group after recently purchasing #889.  Im going to be changing the cutless when I haul out this winter/spring.  How do I access the FLt 12 tool box?  Id love to borrow that bearing removal tool (and know what else is available).

Thanks for the ideas. Velcro was my suggested but barrel bolts or hooks also sound good. My daughters' heads thank you.

Has anyone done anything to keep the filler section of the v-berth from falling down? My kids like to climb up there so I keep the filler section on the lower level. It keeps falling off after the second kid (3yo twins) climb up. I'm afraid it may do the same in the upper level.
