Re: Any tips for removing corroded bolts at rudder?

I would add to the above and say go buy a small cordless impact wrench. I have a 10.8 volt one which is very compact that was included in a kit I purchased and I had absolutely no idea how handy it would be on a boat until I actually started using it. These gadgets will not only rattle stubborn bolts loose better than any hand tool, but it will also do and undo stainless steel philips screws with greatly reduced risk of burring the head over.
