Size:  56.0 KBwell this is what I've got as you can see that hose looks like a balloon around my stuffing box and that's all I can see there's no place else to look at anything. I've got to cut away part of the bulkhead even to see where it's leaking the bilge pump seems to be keeping up with it it comes on briefly every couple of hours and I've bought some rescue tape so I'm going to tape off that balloon and hope that holds until I can get it out of the water
If you can't repair it maybe it shouldn't be on the boat
