I bought my boat
used, and one of the maintenance
items is to replace the wood under the motor
mount at the back. The wood is rotten. I noticed there is a fulton motorlok on the back.
Previous owner says the key for it is lost
, so I will have to find some way to get it off.
I could use dremel or angle grinder, but with the motor
there, and traces of gas around I think this would be a bad idea.
The problem is compounded because there is not much room underneath it, barely room to get a key in (if I had it), so I cannot drill out the lock.
One youtube video showed a guy use a screwdriver in the end and pry it down, which will break off the lock inside, but there is no room underneath to do this.
I tried drilling a hole in the top at the end, and using a screwdriver and hammer to try to do the same thing, but this is not working. It needs to be pried down, not hammered down.
This is the video I watched.
Any thoughts on how to get this off?
