columbia 8.7 stuffing Box

We've recently purchased a Columbia 8.7, The stuffing box needs to be repacked.

Is there a trick to accessing it? so far the only two methods I can see of reaching it without cutting holes in bulkheads are sending in an 8 year old with 2 wrenches or removing the engine. Access from the starboard aft locker is blocked by the refrigeration unit.
