Unless you are trying to do an Exact historic restoration on your boat...

It would be best to use the Carbon/Ceramic face glands (aka stuffing box).

The best, in my opinion, are from PYI Inc... They need no maintenance and are trouble free.

I've installed dozens of these on Rivas here in the States and also in Italy...and even more on large yachts.

They are the most problem free units you will find..

Ufin, in Milano, has in-inventory, the full line of these.

If you have Inch shaft/log... there are plenty of online vendors that will ship to europe... if you need recommendations, let me know.

Good luck.

Hi Bri, thank you, I try to bring her this year in to the water. As soon as possible. But you also know that the "devil is in details" and sometime you waisting times on doing things you never thought about it. And in the moment I dont have a big project so I hopfully are not to often away from home. Yesterday i have checked the old side wood in cockpit and decided to make it new. But I have to order wood again. 4mm sipo plywood. What is your next step?

Hi Bri, nice to hear from you again. Nice Pictures, well done work and looks rearly good. But by the way you should clean the objective from your photo :D

I started painting also. I was using a Brush for painting. Started first with "Pasta Mogana" in two layers.
See next pictures.

In the Moment i am working of finishing the rest wood for Inside and the starting with the enginecover. I have to lift the engine in to masure up the exact high of it. Is still little things of wood to do. Also to buy the side wall wood for cockpit walls. I decidet to make it new. But for that I have to drive 150km to pick it up. 5mm sapeli ply wood. Thats easier than ordering it from north Germany. Would cost me more if I would do. I laso have the paint for the inside wich I will do after paynting outside. i have to sand the outside anyway ;) So i dont care about the mess painting inside. You see I still have a lot of work iand I am not getting boring :D

I will make some new pictures in a week. I hope i will find some times to work on it

Hi Bri...yes I can emagine that feeling working on it. Thats complete different to plastik or steelboats. This wooden boats have a soul. And its much more fun seeing the wood getting to its best. As more you work on it as more you want to get 120 %.
And that is the different to other material. And Wood is timeless. I think it. I dont mind driving a new sport daycruiser but I never would like to build one.

Hi Bri...no problem. I know work comes first. Splecialy when you are under timepressure.
Thank You for the pictures. Engin look rearly good. Nice to see your work and details. Must be fun now to drive around with that boat. So when it comes back you will start on the rest woodwork?
I finished my enginecover and I have seen that it is longer then on super florida model. Still want to ask you if you have some pictures from frontseat underconstuction. Next pictures you see my engine put in just form messurements. Engine will be checked out on a college if it still runs;-)

Hi Bri, i am getting forward but find out that woodwork does need more time as I thought. I finished the sidepanels for cockpit. Now it's only one wood peace left than i start paintjob again. I will have 3 weeks holiday and i hope i get most done in that time.
See my seat construktion. I did the same as it was in the boat because no one could gibe me other plans.
