SHAFT PACKING DRIPLESS 1/4" x 2ft
Installed in the same manner as flax packing. GFO is a fiber packing that is 4 times more thermally conductive than flax. It needs virtually no sea water for lubrication or cooling and because it doesn't swell or shrink, leakage is controlled and kept to an absolute minimun. In fact you'll notice that your bilge is dry and cleaner, because this remarkable packing hardly ever drips. It's so conformable and flexible that it will solve most perpetual problem leakers, too.
The proper packing size is determined by measuring the I.D, of the stuffing box (hollow nut) and the O.D. of the shaft.
* GFO Fiber Packing (Shaft - Rudders)
* Easy To Install - Bilges Stay Dry
* 1/4" Is usually used with one inch shafts.
Exception most Correct Crafts up to 2001 use 3/16". Mid year 2002 up Ski Nautique models switched to 1/4" but the V-drives continued to use 3/16".
