All done . Smile They had to take the engine a little more forward than expected (about 30 cm)  in order to take the SD  out from the cabin because the engine room is quite tight. They took it  to the shop and did the job  before reinstallling. The seals looked good but.. better be safe than sorry! 
By the way, the SD anode did his job too and needed to be replaced after about 1 year and a half.

i have never seen a boot once replaced that looks like it should have been replaced, i appreciate people see this as piece of mind but it is completely unnecessary at the 7 years specified, thats just so Volvo and Yanmar can make money from us.

Inform your insurance company you are not replacing it, maybe they charge small premium but you should easily get more than twice the 7 years specified before actually needing the change. 

I recently observed a Farr in the yard next to mine having sail drive boot replaced after 25 years in operation, the original boot was in excellent condition.
