Hi my name is Max Salgado and I a boatbuilder/designer I think I can add a lot to this hobie community in terms of technical knolegec concerning general boatbuilding methods so feel free to ask me about anything composites

My question is. How can I remove the corner castings from the front crossbar? I unfortunately broke it half and I am currently undergoing repairs now

Thanks

Max

Remove the rivets and heavy blows from a dead blow mallet.

Thanks Matt. I have already removed the rivets and tried several different mallets to remove the corner casting but nothing seems to work, that's why I was wondering if there's any trick

Thanks

Max

Thanks for the offer, Max, but if you have to ask how to remove 6 rivets and bang off a corner casting, then my confidence level on your advice about composites is kind of low.

What kind of boats / composite structures have you designed?

I wasn't trying to be nasty, it's just a fairly simple thing to remove a corner casting which is what you asked in your first post.

You second post explained your real problem. You need to be a bit more specific in your request.requests so we can help you.

Try heating the casting with a torch (not too hot) while you bang on it with the dead blow hammer.
