C&C 24 Table Install/configuration
As part of my major renovation of a C&C 24, I'm finally getting around to making interior repairs.
Does anyone know how the table is supposed to be set up? The one I have obviously goes around that mast compression post, but what holds it in position?
Is there supposed to be a through-hole (s) in the compression post? Maybe the previous owner used the boat for 20 years and never drilled the required hole, but I can't see any way to use it as it is.
I can remove the two bolts and the teak block that will allow it to go around the post, but there is nothing (tightening the bolts after reinstallation won't do it) of keeping it in position vertically or preventing rotation.
There seems to be a hole in the center that would allow a bolt or pin to be slipped through to hold it, but there is no evidence of a hole to do it.
Any ideas? I'll be happy to snap some pictures if that helps.
