Re-packing stuffing box
Leaking at the shaft seal tells me it's time to repack the "stuffing box" of our 83 Newport 28. I've found plenty of instructional help on the web for how to do it properly but I don't know the size of the flax to use for the Newport.
Has anyone repacked their shaft seal on their Newport and know the size of flax I should buy or have any pearls of wisdom on the job?
