Rudder packing gland Swiss cheese. So out comes the shaft and new parts ordered. That will be every piece of bronze ( through hulls & seacocks) replaced in the hull. With the new shaft log and drip less shaft seal, will have a very dry bilge indeed.

Thanks, it turns out the assembly wasn’t bonded, over time eaten away. At some point, once the dust settles, I will inventory everything we’ve done since we hauled in October.
