Re: Suggestions for Cleat re-mounting

Yes it is tough to help without pics, but you say that the cleats lift up by an inch? That could mean 3 things: 1. The cleat was installed with bolts far longer than they needed to be and they have simply come loose. 2. They were bolted through a thick hollow or cored structure and the backing nuts have pulled through the inside layer of glass. Either it is hollow or the core is rotted away. Or 3. The cleats used to be mounted on a riser base that has since broken or rotted away.

Pics! We need Pics!
