    Bingo! Thanks for the idea, I was able to tighten up 3 of the 4 fasteners, good enough for now. Looks like I'll tackle the access problem in the off season. Thanks again!

    Loose bow cleats-gctid394610

    So my bow cleats are getting loose, and when I removed the side bow cushions expecting to find access panels, there are none. Does anyone have any idea how those cleats were installed, and more importantly how one is expected to tighten them when loose? Am I looking at cutting two more holes in my boat?
Working...
