Re: Low buck projects- Let's see 'em!

My gooseneck broke. $750 but I had already blown my budget on electrical upgrades. Could get a shop to make a new fitting for $250 by the end of boating season. None of these options appealed to me so I decided to rig it for the season and it cost me about $50. The repair is holding up so well I think I'll leave it permanently.

Starboard for in between the ss washers
2 ss plate washers machined to exact size.
2 small bolts any locking bolts.
1 ss ubolt
Epoxy so the u bolt won't ever rattle
