Default Bad bearing seals?

A few weeks ago I trailered the boat 100 miles round trip to get an estimate for some work. My usual trailer trip is 1.5 miles round trip to the ramp. I topped off the bearing grease before the trip with enough grease thru the Posilube fittings to push some of the old grease out. Today I was checking on the trailer and noticed these grease spots on the hull. The port side was clean. Do I need to get the seals changed? If the seals need to be changed I'll probably go ahead and change both hubs. The grease spots were about 5 feet long, so I think both hubs are involved After paying for labor, possible new bearings and seals I can get a new hub for about the same $ and have new stuff.
