Denise, I have had one and it's worked flawlessly for 7 years. Very slight moisture beneath it, but no 'drips'. I'd recommend it highly.

Owned five..

I've owned five different PSS's on five different boats and never once had a problem. They are dry and when installed correctly will work very well. I've also used many traditional stufing boxes over my 35 years on the water and prefer the benefits of a PSS over a traditional even when used with Gore GFO packing which is a MUST.

Valiente-

I have it on good authority that those are all setup photos in a studio, and have no bearing on the actual condition of Halekai's boat... which we all know from the photos he's posted of it, in need of major comestic repair.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I always considered grease and grime an anti-oxidant. It never occured to me that spit and polish might also be an anti-oxidant and it looks a lot better.

Windborn...One thing consider doing when your out is putting your shaft zincs up your shaft 5 or 6 inches from any strut....if you ever do mess with your PSS in the water next time you will need to be able to slide the shaft back...and you cant do that if your zincs are tight or close to your strut...
