I want to refinish the deck of my 31' and remove the stanchions to rechrome.  In the Super Disk (yup, I checked there first), I found a reference that the stanchions on a 41 were backed by a plate that is tapped for the thru bolts and the plates are screwed to the bottom of the deck so they will not fall in the bilge.  Is this true for my 1968 31" as well? If that is true, makes the job almost easy for a change.

The 31 stanchions are bolted in with nuts and washers. With a little effort you can access them.

Eppa,  If you will go into your engine room and go to the easiest side you will see them!  I don't remember about the 31 but I do know finding them is easy from the inside.  Lee Dahlen, Glassic Boatworks  Facebook: www.facebook.com/Glassicboatworks

Hey guys, how about the 42?  When I replaced the life line I tighten some of the screws and had a few spinners.

Glad to hear you have had success getting the Connie back in the water.  Heard from Costa, that shafts props and more got treatment as well.

I was aware that the stantions around the transome had four bolts with nuts and washers.  Was hoping that the method on the 42 with a plate screwed to the underside and tapped for the screws which would ease the process.  No such luck.  Then the comment about removal of side walls confirms this is not a project for the neophyte.  Besides I have new walpaper installed!

David contact me off list about a suggestion for your siesed  motors.
