Re: Dislodging Edson pedestal bolts
I don't think you will have to break anything other than the bolts. Once you have drilled off the heads of the bolts you can disassemble everythig and get a more appropriate tool on whats left of the bolt shafts and remove them.
If all that fails you can cut the remaining shaft off, drill out the theaded end and retap the theads in the aluminium pedestal.
We have three rules;
No bleeding on the sails.
No slobbering on the charts.
