Re: Water in the bilge

I can always tell when the packing nut needs tightening by hearing the bilge pump come on. The shaft log is so buried in my boat that seeing it is not an option without mirrors and great feats of Yoga. I have to feel to get wrenches on it. My shaft log wrenches have line attached so dropping them down into never-never land is not possible.
