I hear you. I need to replace the stuffing box hose on my boat. I took a good look at the coupling and everything is rusted together. I asked the yard to do it, and they said that everything is so corroded that they are afraid to try and take it apart. They recommend a new shaft, coupler, cutless bearing etc. I can deal with all that, but to get the shaft out the rudder needs to get dropped, etc.

I'm thinking of waiting until next year so I can do the job right, but first I need to take a real good look at the stuffing box hose.

And of course, I want to launch in two weeks.
