Shaft Packing Size?

Dear Irwin Sailors,

I am the recent new owner of a 1972 Irwin 28, Hull number 175. My shaft packing is leaking and I am trying to find the size of the stuffing box. The prop shaft is 3/4 inch in diameter. I would hope to find the size of shaft packing material to use, since the boat is in the water I do not want to take the unit apart to determine the size. Any information as to the size of stuffing box would be greatly appreciated.

PEACE & FAIR WEATHER, Ted
