Subject: Original Outside Tracks Removal Help
Info: (1331 views) Posted: Monday 7-22-13 03:54:48 PM
When I re-skidded my deck, I had the same problem trying those gunnel tracks (not slotted toe rails on my boat). I used a heat gun, impact wrench, short crow bar and a wood block to protect the deck from damage. It took me an an hour to remove 2 fasteners, so I just rolled around them. If I had to do it again, I would use a propane torch to direct the heat over the steel fasteners. Good Luck!

:: Hey,
::
:: We had some damage to our boat and need to remove the
:: original black steel tracking that runs up the outsides
:: of the deck. We were able to get all the screws off from
:: inside the hull but these tracks are proving to be
:: nearly impossible to pry up. We pounded the screws with
:: hammers/mallets from the interior and simply tried to
:: unscrew the screws from the the exterior but they are
:: completely frozen in. I know many of you have completely
:: removed the tracking and we're curious if there was some
:: sort of secret to getting them off? Thanks in advance.
