I have to cut out frozen deck
fittings off a 22 ft fiberglass deck
. I can't be outside and inside at the same time to hold the nut and turn the screwdriver or bolt head
. So I'm electing to just try and cut the fittings off the deck by going around them with a router type bit in a drill. Since it is a Mcgregor 22 the fiberglass
seems to be only 1/4th " thick. I tried to 'caveman pry' out some but that does'nt work
I thought I recalled some years ago seeing on TV a 'drill bit tipped router type bit' that was supposed to be good at cutting sideways through most any material. I figured if any of you folks know what I'm referring to you could direct me to it at home depot.
I'm keeping the mast
as that's salvageable. The boat
was not stored properly on the trailer
(swing keel)and I had to SHOVEL the debris out of the cockpit
and off the top of the boat
AFTER I cut down the mini forest growing in the cockpit! This was one of those boat's the owners just 'threw away into the back of their yard' 15 years ago and never went back to it. Shame, I could have probably restored the boat to sailing condition 10 years back.
Seems everything was 5200'ed in place as far as the fittings go. I figured it would be easiest for me to just cut everything out and then work
on the pieces at home when I have time.
