Stuffy Box

No I am not being rude. The Stuffy Box is a simple seal that goes on the propeller shaft to allow water lubrication but stops leaks – or so they say.

Anne Marie had one already installed but as it was quite old I bought a replacement. This one is by Orbitrade.

Greasing the shaft proved a messy job.

I am a well traveled, globe-trotting vessel with great lines. I am told I give a comfortable ride for my years. Although a little worn out I am looking forward to getting back onto the water after a full service.
