Boat seat questions?HELP!

7 posts in this topic

How would you keep the screws from coming loose on the bases of the seat swivels?(especially in rough water.)Has anyone tried using rivets?I use stainless hardware on all boat rebuilds.I found that lock washers help somewhat.I was wondering if Automotive lock tight would help?Any/all answers/suggestions appreciated!c63

If they are screwing into a backer plate or a nut under the floor loc-tite should help. If it is a wood screw going into the floor I had a '92 Alumacraft that had 2 screws in one base that kept coming loose, I put gorilla glue on the screws before installing them. Never had another problem with them.

The bolts go through the wood to backer nuts under neath.(You drill a hole first in the wood and then hammer the splined nuts into the wood.)Thanks for the gorilla glue idea!I used gorilla glue on an Acoustic guitar neck my youngest daughter el-ca bonged and the neck is as good as new!c63

If you want to get the screws out at a later date you may not want to use "permanent" glue. Maybe go for the blue loc-tite instead.

Or you can just try adding some silicone on the threads, as that will help it stay grippy enough.

Bees wax is also a good "temporary" option.

Otherwise a small dot of gorilla glue works everytime.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
