Re: Send packing the stuffing gland..

You are reading a lot of bitterness into my comments that wasn't there. I'd rather spend time sailing than fixing too, and spend a lot of time on the water as a result.

I said that they are more expensive to maintain (if you replace the O-rings at the scheduled interval) with the tradeoff that they require less periodic labor. If you are paying for the labor that would change the cost basis one way, if you aren't then it swings it a different way.

I'm no longer participating on SailNet.
