When you have acquired the proper sized packing, cut the end of the first wrap at an angle, test fit around the propeller
shaft before cutting off the roll, cut the tail end at an angle to match the first cut and create an angled seamless seal. Stagger the seams in the packing gland
if additional wraps are used. You don't wanna flood the boat
One wrap, two wraps, three wraps, how many are in there ?
