Having purchased my 32 Commander late last year I noticed that it accumulated about 30 Litres of water in the central bilge on each of its last two outings - principally through the port stuffing box. Now ashore for winter I will replace both stern glands with dripless shaft seals. As there are quite a few brands to choose from, I’d be grateful to hear of any members experience with them / and or the ease of change. Any advice would be much appreciated.
