    What size packing do I need to replace that in the stern tube?  Sorry, I don't remember anything I. The construction manual about it and don't have that here with me in Fiji. When motoring mine leaks. I have tightened it some but it still leaks.  Thanks Bud...

    Hi Dave,

    Saw your post. I used 1/4 square in on our W42.

    Tried next size up but I could not make it work.

    Hope this helps. Here is a photo of it

    Have a great time in Fiji !!

    Best wishes,

    George

    Thanks. Any recollection of the number of wraps? Appreciate your prompt reply. It doesn't seem to difficult and expect t complete in the water. Cheers
