Well, it has been quite some time since the last post. It took some doing, but Orion is splashed. Unfortunately, it was necessary to spend some time on the packing gland and the muffler. The last install of the exhaust system left the muffler above the packing gland and causing wear on an engine transmission nut and the hull. Hopefully, this has been remedied. The stuffing box has been repacked and adjusted. It is now accessible for future tweaking.
