to stop it dropping out? And wether I could drill a hole inthe cross piece strengthening at the top and squirt in epoxy
to secure it?
I have a Beneteau Tech Notice concerning the repair of the Struts for the First series yachts. You cannot yet send private messages but if you will send your email
address to one of the moderators and ask him/her to forward it to me I will send you a copy of the notice that will allow you to make the proper repairs
. It's not too difficult but is awkward and a pain in the neck (literally). Alternately go to the Beneteau Forum on Boatowners.com and you may be able to find a copy of the notice for yourself.
