I tried to finish what I thought would be an EASY project, but to no avail.
Deck-mounted starboard nav light was out, so I tried to remove the three screws that held the lense in place. Easy-peezy, right? Nope- the screws have apparently been bedded in with 5200, because they aren't budging.
One screwhead broke off, one will only work loose a little, and one won't budge at all. I tried Dremeling out a slot on the heads so that I could use a big flat head screwdriver, but that didn't work either.
So what to do now? Drill out the screws with a titanium bit?? That is the only thing I think might work.
