Re: 1979 C&C 29 Mk1 stuffing box flax size?
I have a 1979 C&C 29 Mk 1 as well. Did you ever figure out which size stuffing material? If so I'd love to know. It sounds like 3/16? Mine is a 1" shaft, with the Atomic 4.

1979 C&C 29 Mk1 stuffing box flax size?
I have a 1979 C&C 29 Mk1. It came from the factory with a 2QM15 yanmar.
I need to repack the stuffing box with the boat in the water. I plan to use an old sliced-open bike tube to wrap around the stuffing box while I am working on the repacking, but I want to minimize the time which I have the gland nut off. Does anyone know what packing size the C&C 29 would use? I believe it has a 1" shaft.
The marina at which I keep the boat is not conveniently close to marine supplies stores so I am hoping some C&C 29 owner would know which size flax to purchase. I am tempted to purchase several sizes ( 1/8, 3/16, 1/4 ) and try to arrange a return.
Any input into the size or even which type of packing material would be great.
