    This is probably the best answer:

    BAM!

    Stainless bolts in cast aluminum

    Yea, me too. Gouv got me thinking that the threads in the casting are probably pretty weak, I think I'll go with longer bolts and nuts.

    Stainless bolts in cast aluminum

    Appreciate the offer. But as you were typing I was buying this. The thing is a beast, 450 ft. lbs. (5400 in. lbs). Backed them out like they went in yesterday. DONE.
  5. The rudder split so I have to take it out. The first hurdle is getting the steering quadrant off. The stainless bolts threaded into the cast aluminum won't budge. There's no apparent corrosion, they just have been galled into the cast for 35 years. I've tried propane torch, PB Blaster, wax!, CRC Freeze Off (not impressed) and using my hammer impact driver and nothing budges. Anyone have any good tricks? Will Mapp gas make that much difference? I could spin the bolt heads off and try to break the two halves apart sliding off the unthreaded part of the bolts (assumption there) but if that fails I'm screwed.

    Tohatsu 3.5 hp outboard motor

    Wow, I have a 2hp Mariner stuffed down in the cockpit locker that I'm completely confident will start right up if I ever need it. That thing has been so dependable for 25 years I don't give it a thought. I run an 8HP 2 stroke Yamaha as the primary dinghy motor but that 2 is always there as backup. I like it so much I bought a new 2 stroke 3hp with Tohatsu labels just after they became illegal that is still in the box. I gave away a 2HP air cooled Honda just because, no matter how many times I wanted to, I just couldn't bring myself to chuck it overboard.

    what is it?

    Spreaders look square to me, you can only see the starboard one, what appears to be port spreader is steaming/foredeck light.

    12 meters in Long Island

    I was watching a Wednesday night race Sag Harbor and it looked like a couple of 12 meters were out there. It also looked like one of them parked for a while off Sag Harbor. Anyone know anything about this?

    FUCK no I didn't watch that much! I just saw one that said it was in Maine so I checked it out and hit the jackpot. They left the dock, well got towed off the dock cause they didn't dare back up. forgot the dog on shore, had to figure out how to put the sailboat in forward, anchored and proceeded to ground out and go high and dry, flood the boat, soak the electronics, eat raw oysters that were actually mussels, hmmm, what did I forget. yea, that was a good one.
