If you are as clueless as I was when my old boat was new to me everything sounded as though I should bring in the experts. I did not know what a stuffing box was until we got our Tartan 27. Heck, I did not even know that the engine had a raw water impeller but I found out about both things the hard way. Do not worry so much about this stuffing box issue as it is an easy fix where some are not. With resource links like the ones above you just need to learn by doing it yourself and save yourself a bunch of money and learn about your own boat and it's systems in the process.
