January 6 is famous for many things:
– Twelfth day of Christmas, aka “Little Christmas”
– The Epiphany
– 2nd anniversary of the attacks on the US Capital
But for Shelly and I, we’ll now remember it as Splash Day after being hauled out December 6, 2022 for a bottom job and some fiberglass repairs.
The fix is simply to tighten the stuffing box so the material compresses a little tighter around the shaft. That’s what we did, and it worked! The next time we haul the boat out, we’ll have new packing material added in the stuffing box.
