Re: Dislodging Edson pedestal bolts

Not much to tell you other than they thread into the cast aluminium of the pedestal itself and they are probably corroded beyond belief.
If you start with a small hole and go bigger and bigger, can you drill the heads off from the top?

We have three rules;
No screaming.
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
