Thanks for the info... that was a great instruction on how to rebed the stantions. I was at the boat today, sizing up the job and don't see any evidence of backing plates and I can only reach the outer two nuts without cutting away the glass to reach the inner two. Does anyone have any experience doing the stantions on a 31?? Also the stantion over the shelves in the galley look almost impossible to get to without taking everything apart. Any info would be really appreciated.
