So I recently picked up an older Native Mariner with the propel drive disassembled. The guy was up front about the work it needed and gave me new gears, bearings, a new lower end/prop, and a bunch of other stuff. The one part he was missing is the lower shell gasket. He ordered one through a local Native retailer in Austin in July and they still haven't received it. I can't find a contact number for Native, but I was wondering if anyone has a made their own gasket? I'm guessing it wouldn't be too difficult to just buy a sheet of gasket material and cut one out. Any thoughts? I want to reassemble this drive right now but this is the only thing holding me up.

Lower shell gasket

Native doesn't have a direct, general public, published contact, however the route is thru a Native retailer as you've already done.
The gasket material is rubber, non-cemented in place. The factory gasket covers the whole surface of the housing, less the bolt and drive shaft holes.
It probably goes without saying, but, if you make your own test it after use and maybe a again after a few more uses to make sure it's a sound seal.
