SailorMitch Get the Gore-Tex that DeepFrz recommends. You can tighten the stuffing box so that it doesn't drip at all with that product. It works very well in my boat.

Dripless Packing

Does anyone have any advice on dripless packing? I don't want to go the PSS Shaft Seal route but I believe that there are some Teflon packing products that you can install in place of the normal packing?

Thanks,
