How to fix a propeller shaft leak on a Yanmar 3GM

When you have a leak – you should know how to fix it. Thanks to one of my good friends Rick, I was able to learn how to lessen the leak! Some people may have different techniques or suggest different tools. I used what I had and was thankful for the lesson. I am not certain what is the ideal number of drips per minute, but I know it was a lot less after he helped adjust it. The shaft was located under my bed in my 1993 Hunter Legend 35 and I could actually hear the drips when the air conditioning unit cycled off. Having a much dryer bilge was a bonus as well. Thank you again to my wonderful friends who are willing to teach me how to fix things on my own.
