Oday 28 1981 shaft log

Access to the hose clamps for the heavy duty hose connecting the stuffing box to the shaft tube is restricted. Might the aft two clamps be accessible from the port side under the battery boxes platform ? If anyone has experience trying to tighten the four clamps please comment. I thought the excess drips were from the stuffing box but careful examination revealed drips were from the hose.

As I remember the 28 you might get better access thru the stern section of the quarter berth or by removing the propane locker liner.

Reads like your boat is in the water...please, be very very sure and very careful of what you're doing that hose could be brittle!
