, 42 foot inboard diesel
sailboat, has a PSS dripless seal that was put in at the last haulout. I am not that shot in the butt with it, and am considering going back to a stuffing box with the new graphite packing.

spray all over my engine
, one day. It was easy to adjust to where it was supposed to be, but I never had a stuffing box spray my engine
room with salt water
