Re: Fiberglass buildup around rudder stuffing box
Here are specs and line diagrams of your Greenwich 24': GREENWICH 24 sailboat specifications and details on sailboatdata.com
Yes, this kind of work can be a real PITA because of the confined working space. I don't envy you that.
There does not appear to be a shaft log hose below your stuffing box. The shaft log hose is a black hose made by the Buck Algonquin company that helps keep the stuffing box located. It also adds some flexibility to the installation. There may be no space in your set up for a hose like this as I can't really see the rudder shaft above the stuffing box. Even a small section of this hose would raise the stuffing box above the floor/hull just enough to make it more accessible.
Allied built sturdy boats, by the way.
