This might be interesting.
Let us just hope someone drops by.
To my experience, yachties are the biggest group of 'do it yourself' boaters.

Had problem with extended shaft Honda 9.9: 2005. The "bearing" housing tunnel around the drive shaft becomes occluded in time, building up too much friction to turn. Another sailor had the same problem and dumped the engine. I had mine drilled out so there would be a clearance of about 0.2mm. Since then, not post 2yr...engine has worked perfectly. This is definitely a flaw in the design of the Honda 9.9 extended shaft marine engine.
