Re: Dislodging Edson pedestal bolts

Interesting--I took the same tack as Alex and broke the plastic cylinder to be able to get a good shot at those bolts. I got a new cylinder from Edson (this was 4 years ago), and replacement bolts that were less likely to corrode. Better check, of course. I coated the threads in some Lancote before screwing them back.
