2567RE: [campernicholson] Genoa Track Blister repair
- Mar 1, 2004
The genoa fasteners tracks on my boat pass all the way through the deck, narrow aluminum backing plates and are bolted. The fasteners look relatively clean underneath so I don't anticipate any problem loosening the nuts. Experience with other deck hardware however indicates that the hard part is likely to be freeing up the bolt after removing the nut. Generally, a well placed blow with a hammer has worked for me, but usually means damaging the fastener in the process. In cases such as the chainplates where I definitely did not want any damage to occur, I've found loosening the nut most of the way, placing a socket over it and using a hammer on the socket works well.
