Thanks, I am retrofitting the new style bailer on. I still have to retrofit the new style rudder as well.If you own a Dremel Tool with a small cut-off wheel, use it to cut the cast aluminum nut off on the cockpit side of the assembly. Then just tap the nutless shank with a little hammer and it should pop out.
By the way, my DePersia bailer sold to the first responder several hours ago.
If you're trashing the boat, use a Sawzall to cut the boat from around it.I have one on an old boat that is trashed and I can't remove it. How do I cut it out or is there a way to remove it. The nut holding it in is siezed and rounded off from the previous owner
