Work on the stuffing box while the boat is in the water

Thanks for the replys. I never thought about using a toilet gasket to seal the prop shaft. Interesting idea! tsenator suggested using plumber''s putty and I have heard talk about using children''s Play Dough. So, I have three ideas so far. I would like to know how much water entered the boat while you had the stuffing box out? I would like to hear from anyone else who has actually done the job before I tackle the project. Thanks again for your input. Peter
