{Stus-List} Cuttless bearing question

I had a similar challenge last year. My yard initially said they would want to drop the rudder at the cutlass bearing was thin-walled and their tool could not be used. I got them to borrow a tool that had been used on my boat many seasons ago at a different yard!  Don't recall the cost, wasn't excessive (2 hrs sounds about right) but the time included removal, greasing of max prop.

        Hi guys and  gals

        I have my 34 on the hard doing bottom paint and 2 thru hulls. My cuttless bearing has probably about 20 thousand's play and there is lots of  meat left in the bearing itself. I asked the machanic at the marina how much to replace it and he said atleast 2 hours at 100 per hour and a hundred for the bearing. He also said the bearing may not  come out and then of course we would have to pull the shaft and that would be much more. So im going to put it off till next haul out in 2 years. My question is whats the  chances that i won't be able to get it out with a puller and have to pull the shaft. Which I believe means pulling the rudder as well.
