A fellow club-member told me the amount of water that comes in isn't all that great, and that re-packing the stuffing box in the water isn't all that big a deal. Nonetheless: I would probably find it distracting, at least.
The solution I read about for stopping the water was to put some silly putty or material of like consistency in Saran Wrap or something, and lightly stuff that around the shaft on the male end of the stuffing box.
