Back in 2014 we did a major repair to the stern tube. At that time I knew our rudder stuffing box would need some work in the future. I should have just fixed it then but we wanted to get in the water so I put it off. Well now is the time we need to fix this issue. All 4 of the bolt heads are gone so I'm a little concerned. The way everything goes together it probably wouldn't be an issue but for peace of mind we decided to fix it this year.
Here are some photos of the project. Stay tuned!
