Re: Should it (the binnacle) stay or should it go

I will keep your offer in mind. Though I would likely go with an Edson if I had to change binnacles, or I would convert to tiller like yourself. Thanks for your help...hope to see you on the water some day.

Hush, it is possible the screws are simply pot metal and the twisting you noticed may require drilling.

I recently had that with some concrete screws. For reasons that elude me, they are particularly brittle and the heads snap off like crazy, during install or removal. But there's always plenty of pot metal to go around.

Definitely not pot metal. I have seen the use of pot metals on boats by not pot metal fasteners
