I'm stuck between the Tides marine
sureseal and the lasdrop gen II.. Need to make the decision soon.
I like the idea that I can have a spare or two lip seals
on the shaft on the Tides. If one finally starts leaking you just take it out, cut it off and slide a new one in. Where as the Gen II you would have to take the shaft coupler off and (in my case slide the shaft out of the V-drive too) to replace the face seal. But what I have gathered from a fee days of solid research
on the net is that the Lasdrop gen II is the bearing keeps the seal centered and the bellows has a much better construction (and I think a stainless steel
spring? Or that may just be the Original they make....) both have good reviews. I know the sport fishing
folks use the tides seal a lot with good results. So I'm leaning towards that one. A sailboat doesn't see half the rpms in a year that a sports fisher
