Yes. I get no water in the bilge now that the Gore packing has seated in. Sometimes when I remove the big Bomar hatch in the rear cockpit some trapped water around the seal with drip down and drain through.
But I'm anal and promptly wipe it up.
I dry boat is a happy and fresh smelling boat.

Eric - There is a 'grease groove' machined in the outside of the outer race with a hole to allow grease into the inner bearing.
Not in the picture is a split tapered threaded collar on the shaft that slips between the shaft and inner bearing. The nut and lock washer lock it down.

Anode,
Yes I was guessing about the same on the grease
The "thread collar" must be incredibly thin or I don't understand. Suspect the not understand is more like it.
