Re: Stuffing box adjustment

All,
Thanks for the responses. I had not thought about the packing not rebounding when I loosen it in the spring. I'll keep a close eye on it when I start it up and see. If it starts getting warm, I'll just shut it down and plan on repacking it when I pull the boat. I have picked up a trailer that will fit the boat and plan on pulling it out in early spring for a hull cleaning and some new bottom paint. I guess I should plan of re-packing the stuffing box at the same time.
