Wow. That’s insane. Had mine done by a friend. She can make a direct replica of you post it to her. At least half that price. PM your details. Ross

Hi ROSS had friend who said she could do it but a bit concerned as she is an upholsterer . Live on canvey island ESSEX Cheers Barry.

Fairline corniche 31 1985 stern gland packing

Need to replace stern gland packing , removed compression collar but only removed 1 graphite seal . Insert probe in shaft housing seems solid, don't know if old packing has gone very hard or shaft log bearing is in to far
Any body had this problem ???
