I picked up a pair of used aluminum ladder jacks that have much longer arms than the standard jacks. They are close to twice as long. I'm sure if you could find a set of those, they'd get you out far enough to replace your rake board.
What are you using for a plank? If you have access to an aluminum stage life will be much easier. I've worked off a bunch of 2X10's and 2X12's for over 30 years without ever having a problem. If you're using a 2X10 or 12 just make sure it doesn't have any big knots, and don't use too long of a span.

 Re: Ladder reach question in reply to Pops1532, 10-22-2012 19:54:56  
I am using a 14 inch wide 20 foot Louisville aluminum plank rated at 500 lbs of load. All of my ladders are type 1A. The ladder jacks I have are stinson with the short arm to rest the plank on. I do have one jack with the longer arm that I bought off craigslist. You are right a pair of those would do the job. When I get done with this end of the house I will look for a couple more of the long armed jacks. Using that long arm jack is a good suggestion, Thanks.
