We managed to salvage our existing Yacht Specialties steering pedestal. Problem: The stainless steel bolts threaded thru the aluminum housing had corroded so bad they had to be cut off and cannot be removed from the housing without destroying the housing itself. Solution: We drilled new mounting holes and adapted the unit by welding in threaded nuts to put the new mounting screws into. Result: we no longer need a new steering unit and also have no spare parts.
