Ok so I went down to the boat tonight with tools and packing in hand to tighten the packing nut or replace the packing...

How the heck are you suppose to do that in that small of an area???

After taking a closer look I am wondering if this is a dripless packing setup? Please advise my idiot butt

Can't tell from your picture, but you SHOULD have a GIANT nut just to the left of that rubber hose section. You remove the nut, and pull out the packing and replace.

That is what I thought, but there is no way in the world a man can get to a nut and loosen it if there is one.

There isn't a nut with this configuration. I could be wrong but this is just from your pic that I am guessing.

That appears to be a dripless shaft log, because of the small black hose and the small hose clamp coming off the side of it. That would be the cooling water line.
