    Had a incident last night rigging my brothers boat. Dam chrome shop chromed the shaft too on his steel rudder. Well I didn't notice until after I got a little rammy trying to get it in lol. Well the stuffing box is f'd and need another one. And the rudders back at the chrome shop.
    At $100/ hp plus injection oil it's just to expensive to go that slow!

    Those are really nice stuffing boxes but a little more than I want to spend. Does anyone have a brass one kicking around there not using.

    It was originally plated but was starting to get rusty. Is there something wrong with replating a steel rudder but making off the shaft this time? It's on a 85mph lake boat.
