  9. FWIW I had the same stuffing box in my last boat. it was old, worn and hadn't been repacked in years. When the top was twisted and grease injected if the boat was not in use it never dripped. Once used it would drip constantly, cooling the shaft. this is expected behavior. BTW it was a trivial exercise to replace the knob with a propper grease gun located in a convienant location. SHANE
  10. I'm looking for someone to share 1/2 operating costs over the summer, Cetacea is a good solid, if not flash cruising boat, sleeps 5 comfortably with room to move around. She's a 40foot simple to sail, off shore cruiser. not flash but pretty well equipped, VHFs, Radar, EPIRB, AIS Flares etc. pay half expenses and you get to sail her out of West Harbor as arranged. PM me if interested. SHANE
