I've repacked & rebuilt mine; depends on the problems involved. Simply removing & replacing old packing can be done in the water w/luck. Obviously, it is easier while the boat is hauled. If the shaft tube has worn to allow lots of wobble & poor sealing, you'll have to haul to repair or replace. On my '84 Californian 34, access to the boxes is fairly easy. My boat is in Essex, MD if you need any help, let me know.
