Corrosion build-up was an added problem on top of the tight tolerance. Took the boat out Friday for a short photo shot (yes she is for sale) and upon returning to the slip the temperature was still a little warm 104 degrees but 20 degrees lower then when I took her to the yard. Still need to the let the packing wear in bot so far so good. Keeping fingers crossed.

>007 versus .015-.020 is a big difference in my opinion.

Thanks to all.

Closest thing I could find was from Buck Algonquin. I thought I could search up several different types but they must be out of favor with all the dripless varieties currently available...
