Giulietta,

Now I understand why you said the studs would have to be replaced; they are threaded all of the way to the base. As I see it, my method would simply place the loading stress over a longer portion of the threads, increasing the opportunity for the stress to find a riser.

BTW, I didn't know that you are an engineer when I imparted my solution. Anyway, we understand each other. I don't think you need to go to the trouble of taking additional photos, at least not for my benefit. That's a really good look at the saildrive.

Regards,
Bob
