The 2 cabin boards near the engine came with the boat in a pretty bad shape, they were in need of some love. I decided the risk was very low to exercise my varnishing skills on these boards. The result happened to be way better than I expected.
Update March 2019. After this rainy winter and couple of leaks, it’s time to do the forward cabin floor board.
Easier than expected! I was able to get it out pretty easily with an easy out screw extractor after I drilled a small hole in it with a 1/16″ cobalt drill bit.
Remove the compass
The 3 first ¼”-20 x 3 ½” ¼”-20 x 4” stainless machine screw came out very easily and of course as usual one didn’t come at all after a lot of drilling and one drill bit broken I succeeded to get the compass out with only one screw to replace!
Remove broken ¼”-20 x 3 ½” ¼”-20 x 4” stainless machine screw
At the beginning based on documentation and online information I ordered by mistake 3 ½” machine screws where needed 4″ long screws.
¼”-20 x 4” stainless and should be coated with Tef Gel when installing.
