Stuffing box looks good, double clamps and all. If it drips when the transmission is in neutral, I'd try tightening it a tiny bit and see if that stops it.

Definately needs tightening. It is supposed to DRIP about 7 DROPS when the shaft is spinning.

I have keel cooling and dry exhaust. Wet exhaust is a major cause of engine failure.

Re: Exhaust waterline question?

Some boats squat when under power because at hull speed the stern is in the trough and the bow is climbing the bow wave. Backing off a little may ease the squatting and save fuel. OTOH, I alway feel better after a good squat.

I thought about switching to a dry exhaust and keel-cooler at one time. But the idea of having a hot exhaust pipe running through the engine compartment makes me a bit nervous.
