Re: Stanchion eye removal...

We went through the exact issues after "KATRINA". We had the bronze eyes which we removed and used in new stainless tubing, the old having been bent. Our eyes were held in by what is called Roll Pins. They are stainless and a punch was used to remove them. They were very tight and had been there a long time. We ordered new pins on the net and replaced several.
