Sorry this is a bronze shaft, not stainless.
Could be shaft wear. Will check this afternoon.

Stainless shaft.
I will check alignment and repack the box.

Imagine you were to file a piece of bronze.
The little pile of filings is what this looks like.

I was checking my stuffing box on my 1997 Catalina 34 mk2 because it is dripping once every few seconds. I noticed that there is a collection or buildup up of fine bronze dust under the box. The particles look to be coming in with the water drips.
Clearly there is some sort of abrasive wear.
Has anyone experienced this problem?
