mysterious leak

I had a mysterious leak at one point aboard my sailboat - turned out the stuffing box for the rudder post needed to be repacked.

I initially tightened the nuts - but after one afternoon of sailing in light winds - it was leaking again.

Another source of water into the bilge on my boat is the drain from the refrigeration / ice box.
