Thanks! With a bit of leverage and some wiggling it came off, not damaging the fiberglass.If you're not salvaging the bailer, get a pipe wrench on the bottom side and twist it out.....or more violently, smack it out with a hammer. The nut is really much of what holds it in.
LOL. I did smack it, albeit very lightly. The WD40 soaking and the screwdriver in the exhaust port will be my recommended method.Smack it if you want, and damage the cockpit/hull seam. Ask me how I know. Other option is to put a large screwdriver in the exhaust port and twist it off.
And in that video, it rattled loose and leaked. Ditch the O ring and properly sealed with 4200, you could probably unscrew the nut and it still wouldnt leak. Sealent on the threads would also protect leaking thru a broken seam and a minimal amount under the nut would keep it from unscrewing. That said, maintained and checked using the O ring is OK in most cases and an even easier install...and class legal.As Signal Charlie already stated, there's no need for a sealant. The plastic bailer has an O-ring on the hull side. See the video posted by him earlier in this thread.
