Default Changing a prop shaft seal

Mines leaking and needs to be changed out. I'm pretty handy just never done one before. How hard is it to do? And what is needed? Its a bravo one. Thanks.

Need the special socket to fit the retainer nut. Not a hard job, just takes a little time. Gotta have a manual to walk your thru it.

If you never replaced one before, pay an expert. A lot less expensive than a new drive.
MY 2¢

Found a shop here local that said he can do it for around $400. Tear dwn the lower unit, replace all the seals. I think he said there were 4 or 5 seals and make sure everything else looks good. Sound about right to you guys?. Thx
