Thanks Matt, took 3 days with freeze penetrating oil and plenty of banging with nut in to protect thread and ended up having to use car jack between dolphin striker and crossbar to finally get the dolphin striker out from the end caps. The striker has almost 2" through the end cap and is only reachable in the endcap outer side. Corrosion was too bad so bought a used but solid crossbar. Wouldlike to take it apart to put antisiege but have moved on to restoration of other parts. Anchor plates are in back order at Hobie til Sep so that puts me behind on project. Do you know when the anchor plates will start shipping out. I ordered 6 through Beach Cats at PR.
Marco could you please elaborate on how you used a car jack to get your striker rod out of the corner casting. Ive been beating on mine for hours and it won't budge. Thank you.
