Re-Packing A Traditional Stuffing Box Photo Gallery by Maine Sailing at pbase.com
Hey thanks for the tip I checked out that "photo essay"..WOW! That was good stuff..pretty much took care of all my questions.. only thing is my harbor wants $187.00 for lift and launch and worse once its out they dont allow you to work on your engine on the premises ugh!!

I am confident I can do the re-pack Im just worried about the water.. how fast does it come in?Do I need a external sump along with the bilge?
