I found a leak last week. Thought it was the shaft packing. After a closer look I found a trickle coming from underneath the fiberglass mat around the stuffing box!
My thoughts to repair was to rout out the area about 1/8" deep
and fill with either marinetex or thickened epoxy.
Any suggestions ?? Thank You!!

Since your didn't complete your profile or give any info in your thread, we have no idea what brand, year, model boat, is it still under warranty, etc., therefore I assume your answers will be incomplete too.
