I'd like to thank everyone very much for all the good advice, it certainly helped. The repacking went very quickly and smoothly. I liked the idea of using a piece of inner tube to slow the inflow of water but in this particular case the inflow was fairly minimal - probably a few pints at most. What also helped lot was that a month ago I cut an access hatch in the cockpit sole. If I had had to do the work from the lazarette things would have been more difficult.
