I used to change out the rubber boot on my Yanmar SD20 saildrive
every year or 2, was always a problem however I fastened it.
When I installed my new folding prop in 2007, my Yanmar
dealer said to use Boat Life "Life Seal" to adhere
the boot to the hull. I installed it while the boat was hauled
but I remember being told that it cures better wet...maybe
OK to install under water???? Check with Boat Life for under water install.
By the way that same boot is in place like the day it was installed. I consider this a minor miracle, considering the
the problems getting boots to adhere prior to using lifer seal.
