Stuffing box

I opened the stuffing box to check the seal as there appears to have been little maintenance done to the boat prior to me buying her, as soon as I opened the box there was a strong burned smell. I picked out what was left of the old seal & bought a new 1m length, 3 rings of the 9.5mm waxed flax seal will be installed after a good clean of the box internally.....
