Rudder post leaking?

Anybody know if my Trojan F32 rudder post has something similar to the propshaft packing gland that I can tighten as it's leaking inside my hull running my bilge pumps to death?

Re: Rudder post leaking?

Many rudder posts do have a packing gland just like a prop shaft. On ours, the rudder quadrant has to come off to make room to back off the nut. Pretty easy job if you have good access. I prefer to do it with the boat hauled since water running in makes me real nervous!
