On our first cruise of the year yesterday I noticed an exhaust smell in the front cockpit of our 1941 Custom. I will tighten down the exhaust manifold bolts but for the elbow/exhaust pipe connection is there a better way to tightening the large nut other then the hammer/chisel method?

This is one way https://www.jbtools.com/channellock-463 ... -v-jaw-16/
A strap or chain wrench is another.

Not sure how much room you have but I use the 36 inch pipe wrench from Harbor Freight.
