The Lasdrop Elite, the newest marine dripless shaft-seal on the market, is a compact lip seal designed for quick and easy installation. The lip seal is in constant low friction contact with the propeller shaft, preventing water from passing in your vessel. As in all Lasdrop models, the Elite incorporates a water lubricated alignment bearing, made of a durable co-polymer, directly in the housing to keep the unit properly aligned with the shaft. This new model is mounted on Trident VHT Blue Silicone polyester-reinforced hose. The Elite is designed with a protective seal case that is secured to the housing that encompasses a back-up seal, all included in the kit, making it interchangeable in the future without the need for removing the shaft from the coupling. A 2nd back-up seal in the compartment is also available as an option.

Sold as a complete kit

As a safety feature, each of the Lasdrop models (1 1/8" shafts and above) are manufactured with dual water injection ports; this, in the event that your boat loses an engine, will insure you still have cooling and lubrication water flowing to the unit
