Help ID Dripless

In our first outing (didn't notice the issue on the short test drive) we seemed to be taking on a bit more water than standard. Figured it just needed new packing but apparently the boat has a dripless. Can someone help me ID the brand so that I can try to get new seals? Thank you.

This is not our system and not sure who made it. Feel free to give me call to discuss your options.

Looks closer to what SEF made, I don't believe PYI has a brass housing.

Thanks. I was concerned about the slow leak and figured I would throw the plugs in and add some water to the inside of the bilge to identify if a thru hull was leaking. Water did come out from the shaft log. Not sure if that's a sign of bigger problems.

Eric, l'll give you a call. Thanks!

Dead give away that it's not is the hose. The PSS has a bellows that connect to a carbon block with the hose connected then a stainless collar on the shaft. They work by compression of the stainless collar pushing against the carbon so you need bellows to get that compression.

Looks more like a tides marine series one which would not have parts available if true as you just replace the whole thing.

The water came from around the log?

Err? Stern tube? With water in the hull, water leaks out of the boat where the prop shaft exits the boat.

Wow I totally screwed that up. Definitely not a PSS. Good catch both of you.

With water in the bilge, water leaks from here though I couldn't tell the exact location.
