Shaft Log Leak

Jeff,
Thanks for the reply however the water is not leaking at the packing nut, which is the usual location. If memory is correct, we usually get a drop every several minutes between the packing gland and locking nut. Thats the same as always. Im noticing water further aft where the shaft exits the log and is surrounded by a hose about a 8 inches in front of the packing nut.

The exterior hose surfaces appear dry. The hose over the molded glass log at the bottom aft end is damp to wet at times. I dont see a trail of water along the exterior surafces of the shaft. Also the hose clamps are tight.
