After a getting my carburetor problems taken care of and test driving it the first time I run into another problem. While cruising my foot pedal cane loose. Luckily the wave behind me didn't swamp the boat. After further inspection, the rear screw came loose, so my buddy just held the back down. My question, I had a half inch screw holding it to the hull. Should I be worried about how deep that half inch screw went trough? Would it cause a slow leak and do I need to get new screws to reset the pedal?
