      i'm having aproblem with water leaking into the area of the
      rudder stuffing box. while the boat was hauled last winter i removed
      the rudder and bearing to rebed it. i found the whole area under the
      bearing to be full of hairline cracks. after repairing it with epoxy
      i'm still getting leakage. the water seems to be comeing from the small
      triangle shaped area just aft of the bearing and running into the
      bearing area.has anyone expeirenced a similar problem or have any
      suggestions to its
      repair?
