Re: Shaft Through-hull Leak

I thought I remembered my shaft log being fiberglass, but a quick look on the p28forum photos showed another using a brass through hole.

I will be at my boat later on today and can look at the stuffing box to remind myself of how it is setup.

Either way it sounds like hauling and close inspection are going to be necessary. You have way too much caulk there, that is always a bad sign to me.
boats that I sail on regularly: Pearson 28-2, Rondar 505, Yankee 30, Blanchard Junior
