I really like the seat binder idea a lot, but I won't modify this classic piece of bronze to that extent. I might do it if I obtained a second one from a scrap project. Of course I hate the straight slotted bronze screw too, but I hate the idea of buggering it up with an undersized screw driver used in a pinch. I may use a SS hex bolt for the routine use. (I'm being fussy again, if you had not recognized that.)drill out the hole and replace the screw with a bike seat adjuster
I do have one and I'll check it.If you have a micrometer, check the diameter of the boom in the gooseneck area.
So GreenBoatStuff FINALLY shipped my 8" bronze carriage bolt. Now we can go sailing? No, Signal Charlie got us out of that jam months ago.NOW I NEED THE $15 CARRIAGE BOLT!
Please note that the parts situation has been bad for years because Laser Performance did not deliver. As s results, (parts) dealers in the USA were hurtingSo GreenBoatStuff FINALLY shipped my 8" bronze carriage bolt. Now we can go sailing? No, Signal Charlie got us out of that jam months ago.
So my review on GreenBoatStuff is they do what they say, but it could take a very long time.
Customer service was attentive. I was able to speak to a HUMAN and make order changes straightforwardly. I will give them another try eventually.
Maybe so, you know better. But this was a touch more like bait and switch. The indication was that the parts were available to ship "within 24 hours" , then they were not. It was definitely a screw machine supplier problem. I assume China, but I don't know. 4 months is a long time to wait for one a bolt.the parts situation has been bad for years
