Inquiry re stuffing box for Bristol 27

Hi A4/B-27 Colleagues:
Since this is a sort of prop shaft -related thread, I would like to know your thoughts on repacking the stuffing box for the Bristol 27 through-hull/ prop shaft. What type of material do you recommend? I see that West Marine carries several products some of which contain PTFE. Any tips re this repair procedure gratefully received! (We are getting ready to attempt this soon.)

PS Anyone know where to put a zinc anode on the Bristol 27? There is no exterior cutlass bearing and there is no place to attach one on the small ( but fierce!) propellor. This is something I would really like to know!

I'm attaching a pdf file of the procedure that I went through when repacking our own stuffing box some years ago in case it helps you, and I'm hoping another Bristol 27 owner will check in with advice on where to locate your zinc.
