Installing a new windlass
Our old Muir windlass gave up a couple of weeks ago and we bought a new one thru the PSC factory. Their price for a new Muir was the same as the lowest I found on the Internet and they built a new pad and backing plate for a reasonable fee.
The new pad is for the new Muir design, hence I need to remove the old teak pad. This is not a trivial task, I've found.
Anyone have any ideas for removing blocks of teak glued to the deck ?

PS - if you use a PSC pad have them build the new pad considerably larger than the one for the new boats. It will be easier to hide the old holes, etc with a much larger pad.
