Best method for removing bungs
I have to take up our floorboard for the first time to access a water tank. I am trying to remove the strips of Teak and Holly that have the screws that will allow the floor to come up. The bungs are (so far) not easily removed.
I thought I could just "pop" them out with a screwdriver, but the bungs seem to be varnished in or something. I have used a dremel to get down to the screws and have gotten some of them up eventually, but it is not a neat job and I have a long way to go. Little pieces of the surrounding wood are splintering.
What do I need to do to get the bungs out. Has varnish maybe gotten inside?
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things y%^&*.....oh never mind. 90% of the people on sailing forums already use that as their signature! I'm not a conformist.
