Experience with Dripless Shaft Seals

Yes, I agree, go with the dripless packing.I did it two years ago and have never looked back.
Also, take this to heart. I was motoring my frends Sabre 38 onto the trailer for fall haul-out. After the boat was on the trailer
I noticed water in the bildge. Apiece of wood had fell on the bellows and had let
water into the boat! In a different circumstance this occurance would have
been catastrophic.
