Re: Hot stuffing box...
Do you have a photo of your stuffing box? 12 strands of 1/4" means your packing nut must be at least 3" deep, without the threads that are engaged.
No photo handy but I'll take one. I don't think the nut is sticking out quite three inches from memory, but there are quite a few threads...
I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
