Re: Cape Dory stuffing box leak
OMG, glad you didn't break the shaft log!
I don't know if they make them that big. but maybe a couple "flare nut" wrenches would be the ticket. Maybe you could have something welded up.
PSS shaft seal was the ticket on my boat. But the mere mention of this will start an whole new discussion!
From another thread I have running on the Cape Dory forums, I guess this method is the usual way. The shaft log is metal and not a fiberglass tube so it's pretty tough.
