Catalina 36 MkII traveler rebedding

My Catalina had leaking through bolts from the traveler. There are two through bolts. On the deck there are 4 bolts on both sides, three go into the pulley blocks that are between the raised fiberglass mounting blocks and the traveler extrusion and one goes through the deck.
I have two questions .....
1) Are two through bolts enough to hold the traveler assembly? Seems kinda weak to me.
2) How do I get the pulley assembly off. It has some kind of bedding or glue holding it onto the fiberglass and with its 2" by 10" footprint and no real point to pry on I have no clue where to go from here.

Anybody been through this before ?

Re: Catalina 36 MkII traveler rebedding

An update - looks like there are nuts embedded in the deck for those bolts that don't go through all the way.
The bedding compound used is not solid, I have been able to get about an inch pried up on one side but if I do any more prying I am afraid I will damage the pulley assembly.

if you can post some photos it would be a lot easier to give some advice,bedded bolts are not nessacarily catalina specific.

Re: Catalina 36 MkII traveler rebedding

We found a leak from our traveler which is pretty much the same as yours.

Take the cars off the track if you have to, it might make it easier. It will also give you a chance to include Lanocote in all the s/s screws into the aluminum.

Unless your PO glued them down, all the factory did was bed the track on the fiberglass. Try using the guitar string method to try to break the bond.

You might also not be aware of a great group of skippers and their forum at Catalina 36/375 International Association | "It's always nice when there is a support network for used boat buyers and Catalina 36 has one of the best" (Boat US). You should get to know them. Our C34 Forum on our site is also attended by a lot of C36 skippers and ours do theirs as well. http://c34.org/bbs/index.php/board,11.0.html

Almost the same boat, same systems and engines.

Good luck.
