Prop shaft coupling removal

I have an Oceanis Clipper 361 - 2001, I need to install a new Shaft seal stuffing box and therefore need to remove the shaft coupling. I have detached the coupling from the gearbox and removed the 24mm nut from the end of the shaft. I have used a gear puller and lots of penetrating oil but can't seem to pull the coupling off, I've read somewhere that suggested that you have to be patient and keep trying however I have tried for a full 5 hours today and nothing!

Has anyone any ideas that might help? or might I have missed something?
