One of the machine screws that secure the Seal Line rudder bracket to my kayak is floating free, (the threads in the kevlar are evidently stripped)
I tried a longer screw, but that didn’t grab anything either.
I have several thoughts for a fix such as filling the hole with epoxy and then while it is still wet, screw the bolt into it. If I do that will the bolt be able to unscrew when the epoxy hardens?
- Fill the hole with epoxy , let it harden and then drill a pilot hole and use a regular pointed screw.
- use the next larger diameter machine screw and see if I can retap it with it.
Before I try anything I was wondering if any one else ever had this problem and if so how did you fix it?
