Default Leaking outdrive?

Please someone tell me this is not going to be a major expense. 1990 OMC King Cobra. Discovered small leak, I'm guessing gear lube. Also has developed some play when in gear.

Gator:

I've got a 97 OMC King Cobra 454/300 hp and had a problem where it wouldn't shift from neautral. The dealer looked at it and replaced the cone clutch because they said I developed a leak in the outdrive. The total cost was $1206, but it included a new shift cable to which was $200 alone. I would think you are looking at somewhere around $900 at least. Good luck finding a reputable dealer/shop and getting it done before the end of summer!

Any other opinions? I had hoped there could be something less costly.
