31 Traveler


I wanted to change the traveler line on my 88 Pacific Seacraft 31. It looked like the only way to do that would be to remove the the two 1/2 inch stainless steel bolts in the Lewmar aluminum car. I used a small wrench and I am not THAT strong. The first bolt sheared off clean at the surface of the car. The other one just sits there ... scared.

Does anyone know the model of the Lewmar traveler car that would have been installed in the late 80's? I might find a used one.

If that fails:

I have never drilled out and re-tapped .... well, anything. The internet discussions on stainless steel in aluminum make it look like it were best done after two years of machine shop. "Don't harden the steel drilling too fast, Use Acid, Solder things to things" I wasted my youth on Philosophy courses.

Should I do this?
