Re: Dripless Shaft Seal versus Stuffing Box

Interesting article Casey. He makes some good observations about what can go wrong and that maintenance is required. Bottom line: the author has a dripless shaft seal on his boat.
I put a shaft zinc on forward of the stainless ring on the seal instead of a hose clamp.
