Baby's Refit...Sources for Materials?

What would be a good source for cutlass bearings, shaft, and stuffing box components at reasonable rates (other than West Marine, if any!). I've seen Deep Blue Yacht Supply for the drive train stuff, but want other opinions.

Defender or Fisheries Supply Seattle Wa, probably not for shaft though. Look under props in your local area for that, or once it's out if you are qualified to determine exactly what you need you could get it on line I suppose.

Props ok, just needs cleaning up, but afraid shaft may have severe wear once I get the remains of the cutlass bearing out! Lot of cavitation and vibration in reverse but not in forward. Also, tranny/engine loads down in reverse to the point of not increasing ACTUAL revs above 700 with throttle most of the way up. That changes if you kick it into neutral, revs shoot up as soon as trans disengauged. Trans is full of clean oil. Forward is not as bad, but same as reverse minus the cavitation.
