RE: Dripless Stuffing Boxes

Now Tim that's the difference.
Take me with a timber boat I love to have a little salt water down there so that things don't get dry and dusty.
occasionally I pump it all dry for a little clean up.
But being old fashioned I like a good stern gland with a little dribble but do admit to heading the way of the Gortex packing in the future.
