Subject: Original Outside Tracks Removal Help

Let me clarify the "impact wrench." Actually an impact driver with a 3 pound hammer.

:: 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!
