Re: Stanchion eye removal...
Do you want to save the brass eye, or the bent stanchion, or both?
Have you put a screwdriver through the eye and tried to force it turn?
PB Blaster or similar penetrating oil might help, as might some heat from a torch.
If you don't care about the bent stanchion you could simply cut it away from the brass eye with a tool like a grinder.
Sounds to me as though your boat survived Sandy down in Gravesend Bay. I am glad to think this.
