Default Water Pump gasket replacement

Has anyone done this? After my power steering hose blew, I cleaned the whole engine bay and now the water pump gasket is leaking at the block on the underside, I tried tightening the bolts some more but they are not budging to get any tighter.... I bought a new gasket and sealer, but I spent over an hour and a half trying to get to it but can not get the fan clutch assembly off to remove the shroud.... So, I am assuming this is going to be a shop repair? And how much will this repair cost in General... Just the gasket and sealer cost me $9... I assume the shop will charge $300 just to put a gasket on????? Apparently there is a special tool needed?
