first post! jib block removal
firstly let me say wow is that image verification difficult lol. took several tries. i found several threads on how that jib block was attatched. i'm working on a 4XXX boat, and i found that it is supposed to have screws. however, i see no screws, and it's REALLY stuck. i'm even contemplating just grinding the whole thing off because i'm going to modern style sheeting. i'm just wondering if the screws are supposed to be coming from the bottom or the top. i got the foam out and looked up and it looks like there are two little bumps in the fiber glass that might be those screws, but it's a little too hard to cut, i would have to grind it. is it common to not find these screws? next question: someone put the aluminum jam cleat behind the cam cleats on with stainless screws. they sure are stuck in there well. i tried extreme heat, and pb blaster, and i get nothing. i guess i'll have to drill them out? thanks all!
