I looked under the gunwale where the mount goes in, and there's a very small opening to reach in and access the bottom of the bolts. The problem is that the opening is right under the rear (aft) bolt, and it literally seems impossible that a hand with any conventional tool (e.g. a spanner wrench) can fit in there to grab the fore bolt.

Does anyone have tips on tightening this part of the tower?
