    Updating this thread to tell anyone who sees this in the future... don't do what I did turboman was correct and the carrier came the rest of the way off on my next trip out. Thankfully I was half expecting this and didn't sink. On the bright side, it was a lot easier to remove this time. I cleaned both surfaces (hull and carrier) and slathered on the 5200. Probably too much. To my naked eye it doesn't seem like the carrier is "sitting down" enough / as much as it used to, but the sealant got pressed out the underside as well so I'm taking that as a good sign. Letting it cure for a week and I will report back with results. Might glass over it if this holds

    Hopefully this should do the trick. I plan on filling rear of hull with water and watching for leaks in the next day or two. If everything seems good I might just add a little more 5200 for peace of mind... This stuff is seriously messy. I didn't plan on having the bottom get so messy but I don't think it should affect performance.

    Youll be fine aslong as it doesn't rub on the drive shaft and its sealed.

    I tried to make sure it was as straight as possible and test fit driveshaft before making a sharpie mark on the glass for where to place holder. Worst case scenario, will that damage the driveshaft or just loosen the holder?

  7. #26
    Prob loosen holder and possibly damage it

    When i reseal them i put the pump, holder and driveshaft back in before it sets to verify

    Thanks, I will make sure the driveshaft has plenty of clearance before bolting everything back down. Also, I have not removed the pump. Just the engine and drive shaft. Should I have removed the pump as well?

    Going to be alittle hard to align the shaft with pump in.

    Last time I didn't remove the pump either.. just slid the shaft in and had a buddy look underneath and help me align. If this approach could result in poor alignment and lead to issues later down the road involving driveshaft holder/motor mounts going bad I can remove the pump

    No will not cause any issues
