stuffing box

Boat was on the hard when I repacked the rudder stuffing box. It appears to me that the stuffing box was above or near the waterline and it mostly leaked when under way. However, I was not willing to take the chance and waited until boat was hauled. Discretion and valor........... BTW I am very meticulous, very cautious--and very slow--doing boat projects.
