We have had the PYI "Shaft Seal" on our sloop for the past 3 years and had one on our previous boat as well. It works as advertised, so far! We boat on Lake Superior and I don't know if fresh water vs. seawater is an issue here. I'm not hesitant to recommend it however, the old tried and true stuffing box has withstood the test of time. My opinion is the PYI version is indeed a "better mousetrap". But it's just my opinion. I would check around with other forums and perhaps boat builders to get their opinions. You'll sleep better while anchored. Tom
