Pearson 32 with Kenyon aluminum boom has aft-most sail slug of bronze.
It will not move or come off. I had to cut the canvas strap to take off the mainsail and get it patched. Now trying to get that old slug off, I've tried:
- Rubber mallet
- Claw hammer
- hammer with screwdriver
- Liquid Wrench
- PB Blaster (type of penetrant)
- Heat gun
- Razor blade to ensure edges are free of gunk
Nothing has moved the slug. Today's effort with another sailor was 1,000 hammer taps of varying force from all 5 directions (cannot hammer from the bottom of the boom) after applying PB blaster and waiting for various time intervals.
