cool stuffing box


I fussed with my stuffing box for 6 or 7 years counting drips and never quite happy. Last year I had the boat out of the water for painting the bottom and I asked them to change the stuffing. By the time I got back to my slip there were way too many drips. But this time I had the photos from this site:

When I tightened it back up I had zero drips at rest and just a light spray (no drips) motoring. The box is cool to the touch no matter how long I have been motoring. I did not do anything really different then what everyone else has suggested and the box is so cool I am almost worried but no problems after a year so far.
