    Default SeaSport anchor roller removal

    Anyone take one off a 24' Seasport yet. Wondering if the bolts are lags and or bolts with nuts. I don't want to loosen them until I know because I can not see or touch them from the bottom side.

    I finally drilled the heads off of the bolts from the topside and pushed them thru. Then to get the new bolts back up: I used a piece of bar stock 1" wide and dried two holes. I then filed them square to accept stainless carriage bolts. Once inserted I used a snap ring on the threaded side to hold them in place. I then dropped a screw on a string (x's2) from above to where I could see them. Taped the strings to the bolts and then pulled the strings up and the bolts thru the bow holes. I then tied the strings up and sealed with 5200 sealant. Repeat process for other two bolts. Once the 5200 hardened, I removed the strings, placed the new bow roller on and used acorn nuts to secure. Where there is a way, there is an engineer to figure it out.
