Check your packing gland while underway, and at rest, before the haul-out. If the drip rate is too high or you've recently tightened it to cure a too-high drip rate, consider re-packing it while she's out of the water.

Also inspect the stern tube and the rubber hose connecting that to the stuffing box.
