I was just informed that the bellows in my Bravo 1 need to be replaced. In addition the drive shaft and u joints are rusty. I was shocked at the initial estimate, $1,700 (+). How many hours does it take to do this job? How hard is it? Are special tools needed? A little research on the internet shows the bellows parts are about $80-$100. How much is a new shaft, bearings/seals and u-joints? Is the rest all labor?
No exhaust bellows are needed, boat has thru hull exhaust.
Any info would be appreciated.
