Hi Kent and Eric,
We changed the packing in July. Been dry almost always.
One difficulty I have is the modified rudder bellcrank needed to accommodate the hyd AP DRIVE. Means I must place the boat in irons to dismantle the array. I outwaited the leak and fixed the issue in 30 mins once at the dock.
Comment on the hyd AP: works very well and is far more supple than the elec unit. If you ever consider such a mod, I am very pleased.
