Packing gland coming out of top of rudder tube!

There are various ways that rudder packing glands are constructed. I would contact Catalina to see what they would recommend or else try to find a Catalina 38 forum. Most packing glands that I have experienced on my own boats have a rubber boot with hose clamps between the gland and the glass rudder tube.
Good Luck,
Jeff
