Or better yet a Crow foot wrench with 1/2" drive...

Re: Cape Dory stuffing box leak

Making big short handled spanners to fit stuffing nuts is no biggy. Drill the layout on 1/4 plate and file away. I use two to take the strain off the hose. The handles can be extended with short lengths of pipe with end hammered oval . Cut one out of thin ply for testing shape. Get the angle right.

Where are you located?

If you bought the one near Melbourne, FL for sale, I know someone that can help you. If that's you, send me a PM.
