Your options are either removing the shaft coupling or cutting the hose back. Can you post a picture? Either one the boat should be on the hard.

I've done it in the water. Took some nerve though.

Thanks Diveguy I will try to cut hose back 1/2 inch or somehow slide box back towards stern to allow some extra room I need?
