If you have not replaced your stuffing box you have not yet lived!
If you replace the packing now you will know that it is good for 5+ years. If you don't you will never know when it will need replacing and it is pretty easy to do before launching.
Get the Gore GFO packing. We are going on 5 seasons with it and still going strong.
It is a really good idea to get to know the places your boat could be leaking from and the stuffing box is only one of them.
Now fetch my Port wine, violin and gather Dr. Maturin and his cello please.
