Smile Hi everyone!

Hello everyone! I'm Jimmy. Just signed in to SailNet after hovering around a few weeks. It seems this is a very helpful net for fairly new sailors like me!

I sail on the Hudson river in NY on a 1981 Newport 28 built by Capital Yacht powered by an inboard Universal 5411, which incidentally just died. I am now in the process of trying to pull it out for repair or replacement.

Already I have an issue which I hope someone could advise me on:
As I started to look at how to remove the motor from its mounts (flex mounts, 4 of them) I discovered all of the studs that attach the motor mounts to the fiberglass stringer would spin with their nuts as I loosened them. Any suggestions how I could take these out without damaging the studs or having to dig them out and damage the stringers in the process (and also save whatever skin I have on my knuckles!)? How were the studs installed in the first place? I will try to post pics the next time.

I should be grateful if anyone could share their knowledge or expertise on this...

Many thanks to all!
Jimmy (Bateau25)

I had the same problem, but the boat was wooden and I was replacing the bed logs too. If you don't get an answer here try posting under "gear and maintenance".
