Right again saildog ! Just looking through my old posts to see if there was any new information. And you are right , they are nuts and bolts, some with backer plates, so i need 2 people for the job.
I've assembled the parts and tools for the job and waiting 'till next sunday/monday, for my Dad to help with the removal, rebedding and replacement. I know it's fathers day weekend & i have some guilt about putting the old guy to work. but he gets to race my sabre this saturday, our sailing club has a fathers day race.
the " better things " in life , aren't "the things" . . .
