i had a rattling noise in the 1 1/2" SS rudder shaft when motoring. the packing gland had a 10" long hose about 2 3/4 diameter glued to the nut on top, the top end was above the water line to stop any leakage from getting in the boat. when i screwed off the top, there was no packing in it. i put 1/4 " packing in & tightened it . the boat was out of the water at the time. when i launched & tried it out, i had no more noise. it had been that way from the time it was built in 1994. i got the boat in 2003 & found this out in 2007 .
Liberals are people who care about others. Freethinkers are not constrained by the myths of religion.
