well, taking a look at the boat this morning.. it was no longer leaking, but i didn't get a chance to bring the boat for a run today due to the hoooorible weather in Ontario this weekend.

So I am going to say it was pretty much a success, i may replace the wax packing with the gore-tex stuff I have on order at the end of the season, or if it acts up again during the season.

Tanks again for all the information guys!
