BTW, the above pliers are for c-clips and split rings... not for what you're doing IIRC, and don't have the strength for what you're doing. What I believe you're looking for is this:



The one pictured is a Park Tools SPA-1 Pin Spanner Wrench, and can be gotten at any good bicycle shop.

A heavier duty one is the Park Tools SPA-6 and it looks like this:



You can buy the stainless steel version of the above tools at the marine chandlery, but they'll cost you about five times as much as either of the above.

A really nice Pin Spanner Wrench, if you need one is the Facom Pin Wrench, about $65, versus $9 for the Park SPA-1, or $13 for the Park SPA-6



C-clip

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

You can also make one in a pinch by drilling two correctly spaced holes through a spare winch handle (or other available bar) and placing a couple machine screws through them locked down with nuts.

Always happy to help another sailer spend his boat bucks!

Some of them are referred to as a Deck Plate Wrench. ABI makes one that looks like this -

hey all/ thanks so much-- those are exactly what I was talking about- and specifically the ABI one is what I had used and had in mind-- I have a bike store here and sounds like the park is the most economical (save for the converted winch handle- good idea!). thanks much

At least in the US, most circlip pliers are not strong enough to deal with what we're talking about here, especially if some gorilla torqued it down tight.
