Need help with PTO boot!
As stated in an earlier thread, one of the clamps was missing off of the pto boot, so I got a heavy duty tie wrap and put it around the boot. Well, as I was putting grease back in it I noticed grease coming out of a pin hole in the rubber boot (see attached). I guess the boot got damaged when the clamp came off. Anyway, my question is this, should I replace the boot completely or try to patch it with some kind of rubber cement. And what all has to be done to remove the PTO shaft? We were planning to take the boat out this weekend.

You have to remove the pump and take out the drive shaft to replace the boot What year boat is it? Plus you need oracer pliers to put the clamp on

I would patch it with a rubber tire patch then next time you change the wear ring and have to pull the pump, change the boot. Zip ties work fine. All that boot does is hold some grease in where the driveshaft splines insert into a splined hole on the PTO. A little grease in there is all that is needed. You don't need to pressure it up with grease.
