So my stuffing box was leaking like crazy last year so I had the marina replace the packing. Unfortunately it is and has been leaking like crazy all this year also and right now it's only been 60 hours since the marina repacked it, now I'm going to do it myself thanks to the threads I read on this forum.

My question - how long is this stuff supposed to last before you have to repack it or even adjust it again? What about if you use the Goretex stuff does it last longer? anyone with real life time periods to share?

How often do you find yourself adjusting the stuffing box during the normal lifecycle? Every 20 hours, 50, 100?
