HI all can anyone help ? I have a 1992 26 ft. Rogue Cruiser and i am trying to take the vertical windlass out, i took the screws off the top part of the windlass on the Bow and the nuts off the bolts under the bow in the cabin where the line comes in and i still cant take it off. I looked all over the windlass and i cant find any more screws or bolts that is still holding it. I also tried to pry it off a little but i don't want to break it . It has a lot of salt on it so i am thinking it is just stuck . Does any one have any ideas or information on this?
Thanks, John

The windlass base may also have been bonded to the deck with a structural adhesive, or a tenacious bedding compound.
