Re: A Stuffing box repair
It does not seem an excessive cost for that job, and they seem to have done it well.
Getting a coupling off a shaft can be difficult if it has been on there a while. The first time I had to get a coupling off a shaft, I had to cut mine off with a grinder. The last time, heat, and hammering got it off.
The excuse used that you are not allowed to work on your own ship because of "insurance" is just that, an excuse.
If I had paid anyone to do all the work on my ship, I would be bankrupt by now.
