Hi all,
Well a little question : I wanted to retighten the allen screws that assemble that Xbars to the hull. I have a handy set of various sizes allen wrench. The thing is that it seems to be between 4 millimeter and 5 millimeter. What is the exact size in US values ?
Do any Europeans on the board know where to get such a tool ?
Perhaps it would be a good idea to include one in every Island ?
Cheers

That's probably 3/16 inch (= 4.76mm) Arno. Don't they still use Imperial measures in the UK? If so, what a great excuse to sail your new AI across the Channel (after driving it the length of France of course). I'd post you one, but I live in a metric country. I'll have a look and see if I can obtain one.

3/16 inch will do it.
