Re: Had to do it
Just looked up the price of a new Vision II. Wow 2,000 plus, I guess I shouldn't have been surprised.
So what is the trick on mounting the new pedestal? The bolts certainly didn't line up so drill new holes?
Were the old holes covered?
I know what you mean about pedestal corrosion. Aluminum and stainless screws can fuse like welding.
The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.
