    Bayliner 175, boat snaps loose/stripped out-gctid748206

    I did a search but didn't find anything. I've had a few fall out completely and a few more that won't tighten. It looks like they thread into the fiberglass itself and the hole is stripped

    I'll talk to the dealer obviously as the boat is new. Just wondering would something like JB Weld hold them in place? Lock Tight? I'm not familiar with fiberglass so I don't know what options someone would use....

    I have had a few do this over time, granted my boat is not brand new. I removed the screw and put in a clear silicone and then put the screw back in. that has solved my issues. Seeing as your boat is new sounds like someone maybe used too big a drill bit to pre drill the holes

      Do you mean the snaps for the canvas? Id use something like 3m 4200 to really hold them in. Maybe use a little epoxy and glass bead mix to back fill and re drill the hole if ut was pretty wallowed out.

        use an epoxy filler for the lholes. let it dry and replace them. I moved mine a little distance from the original holes. Works fine. Also! put a little, wd 40 on the inside ;of the female snaps from time to time, and they will never get stiff. Use caution when unbuttoning them.

          +1 on the epoxy.

          I use a light weight oil and apply with a q tip to the female snap.

            I have never had it happen but I would think either 4200 or 5200 or repair the fiberglass and reset the fittings.

              I have to use the original holes because of the cover. So are you suggesting using filler, let dry, and then re tap the hole, or use filler and put the screw in right away and let dry?

                I'd use 5200 and install new male part with new screw and leave it to dry well. Oil or WD on the female part is a good idea. You can buy the male part including screw for cheap. Be sure they are SS.

                  Either way will work. The urethane (5200) will also work but if the screw hole is extremely striped out the epoxy may be a more permanent solution.

                    Once repaired, use this tool to remove canvas from boat snaps.

                    Just insert between canvas and boat snap and gently pry off. Easy to use and prevents pulling on canvas to remove. I always use this tool, even though my snaps are easy to remove on their own.

                    The other end is used to snap the canvas to the boat when the fit is tight.

                        Since the boat is new from the dealer, it's going in next month for snap repair, and the speedometer, which hasn't worked since I got it. Don't want to bring it in now as I'm on vacation and the boat is at the lake

                          I would use marine epoxy. West System has a product that comes in a caulking tube and a tip that mixes the product as you dispense. Let cure and re drill. Tape the surrounding area as once it cures, it ain't coming off.

                            Here is a trick a friend of mine showed me... Cut a 3/4" piece of stranded 16 - 18 awg wire leaving the insulation in place. Place the wire in the hole and rescrew the threaded snap into the hole. The wire will fill the gap and secure the snap.
