|paul323||Thanks guys. Apologies for the brief hijacking. Makes perfect sense; I have the standard 'keys' aboard, so I guess this is just a backup which will fit both diesel and water - probably also for the emergency tiller deck plate - and perhaps provide more leverage when needed. Cool.|

|paul323||eherlihy, what is that tool you had in your photo (http://www.sailnet.com/forums/gear-m...l#post659745)? I have one in my chart table from the PO - no idea what it is for.|

Again, this doesn't work if the nut is recessed at all and will have problems unless you can get the tool flat against the nut.
