Rudder Post packing for Sharki
The rudder post on our Sharki is beginning to leak a little and there
is not much adjustment left on the packing nut, so it's probably time
to pull and replace the packing. I understand that this is similar
to packing a shaft seal, but since we have a dripless shaft seal, we
have no experience. Has anyone repacked their rudder post seal? If
so, what size flax rope did you use? Did you repack it in the water
or on the hard? Any info is appreciated.
