I removed my SX wings over the summer, primarily to stow them due to the storms we had (boat sits on beach year-round), but also to sail without them for fun. I like having the option to take them on and off at will to suit my sailing style.
Here's my problem..the locknuts on the 4 studs had never been removed, and were really tight. When I unbolted the wings, the studs came out of the slugs in the crossbar instead of the nuts coming off the studs.
I bought a new set of studs and nuts, but won't this happen again when I remove the nuts?
I was thinking about putting some blue locktite on the studs, but maybe that's a bad idea. How do the wing-sailors out there overcome this?
