    Default switching bowls

    so Im switching over to a split bowl on my tahit daycrusier and Whats the trick to getting at some of the bolts on the inside off the boat that are the bottom of the bowl????. I had to use a breaker bar on the one's I can reach but I dont have much strength in my right hand after having surgery. I guess a 3/4 " swivel socket might work..looks like another trip to harbor freight

    X2. Makes thing a whole lot easier. If you don't want to take it off then it will take some serious patience but you CAN get it off. Good luck.

    Do you (or a nice neighbor) have an air compressor? I may be making a run down to that area tomorrow afternoon and can bring my HD impact gun, extensions, swivel etc by for a few min. If you can get air from a neighbor I have 175 feet of hose and a resivoir tank.

    Appreciate the offer but Im good now after thinking about it for awhile. I will take the transom plate off first.... I had a brain fart. My buddy gave me is key code to his shop that has the tools and air compressor etc in it. Now I dont have to wait till he is back in town.


    Thanks guys
