    Hi - An update, we left without installing the dripless packing system. We are currently out of the water down in Mazatlan and getting a new shaft put in, and I have a package of Drip Less Moldable Packing on the boat, it is a green putty with a tube of I'm guessing lubricant. I'm curious is this is what you are using, or another product? I would like to try using it but I think the boatyard isn't interested in putting it in but maybe some positive feedback on the product from another user of the same boat would convince them. Based on my reading forums and experience so far I'm actually thinking even conventional packing isn't so bad, but if the dripless material works well it would be a bit more convenient.

    Thanks!

    Hi - I'm prepping a Tartan 37 for offshore cruising, and was thinking about a dripless packing shaft. I'm curious if you know the outside diameter of the shaft tube on a Tartan 37, and why you aren't in favor of a dripless packing shaft. What would you use instead?

    Thanks!
