Trojan's are only good for one time use.

I suddenly have a feeling that you have a much more special relationship with your boat than I have with mine.

I've had people in the past argue, "it's not graphite, its carbon." Well, actually they are one of the same.

I think "carbon graphite" is similar to "Catholic Pope" or "Jewish Rabi". We all know what you're talking about.

I guess you could say we're Blood Brothers (relatives), I've mixed enough blood and sweat in the epoxy pots to give it my DNA. But I'm not a Paraphiliac.

I'm with you on this. We have a Hundested variable pitch prop with pitch control crank in the cockpit. To get to a mechanical seal the boat must come out of the water. The 3-blade needs to be disassembled. The control shaft needs to be unscrewed (count the turns) from the transmission and pulled out through the prop shaft. The coupling needs to be broken and the shaft pulled back.

Packing = easy. I too change out the packing at sea - no problem.
