To Change or Not To Change

hi to all

while scrubbing the propellor's blades from the marine growth, I noticed a movement in the shaft (about 1mm) .I know this is due to the wearing of the cutlass bearing which means a haul out and precious sailing days wasted from an already short vacation,I have never seen my stern stuffing arrangement leak ,it is by the way a volvo rubber shaft seal
do I change the cutlass bearing or leave it as it is ??

suggestions and advise are welcome

You can safely postpone haul-out until after your vacation (I'm assuming it's weeks, not years!)
