Prop Shaft Seals

Hi ... just had the rubber tube coupling between the stern tube and stuffing box break down and causing significant leaking. Guests are arriving coupla days. I have taped off outside prop shaft to stop leaking and am getting towed to a lift.

My shaft is 1.25" and I am running a yanmar 27hp diesel on 36' sailboat.

Can anyone recommend a reliable dripless shaft seal product for my setup.

Thanks in advance...
Gary
