I'm trying to repack the rudder packing glad. I've got another thread going, but I just wanted to ask some quick question.

Has anyone removed the hose beneath the rudder packing gland?
How much gap is there between gland and hull rudder post flange?
Is the hose supporting the gland?

I'm looking into repacking the gland by dropping the south side gland and making a water tight boot in situ. This boot would be soft, not rigid. Would this work?

Psc34 have bronze rudder boots that support the rudder, so we will not lose the rudder.
