    Posted: October-12-2011 at 8:15pm
The bow lifting ring on my 1993 Sport Nautique is loose. I need to remove the coaming pads\bow seat backs to access the bolt/nut. I do not see how the pads are attached. I called CC and the discription I recieved from them does not match my boat. Does anyone have experience with removing them?

I dont have any specific experience with that boat but I would guess there are several studs on the upper part that you will have to reach and undo. They may also use a few plastic christmas trees, I would advise getting a bag of those to keep handy.

Do you have any pics? My 93 sport doesn't seem to have these pads? I would say just remove the bow seats and there is an access port to get to the lift ring.

I have the bow seating out of my 98 Sport at the moment. Should be similar to your 93 hopefully. There is some screws accessible from behind the observers seat and behind divers side kick panel. There is also some screws up the front behind the middle small cushion at the very point of the bow. You can see the screw holes in the pictures in both the fibreglass deck and the bow seating insert. The sides of the bow insert are held in by the alloy plates attached to deck that slide up in the cutouts in the insert.

Hope this helps hard to explain but the pictures will tell the story better.

Lewy2001,

Thanks for the response. Those pictures were exactly what I needed. The pictures showed what the CC Tech was describing, but I could not picture. It came out with no problem, not sure how I am going to start the screws in the bow when putting it back.

Thanks again,
Phillip

I have the same problem with the loose front lifting ring. Have had the issue since I owned the boat and have never been able to figure out how to get to the bolt underneath to tighten it. I know for sure that I do not have that big access hole that Lewy shows in his pic! I have put my hand up behind that cushion and there is no hole!

Lewy, was their some sort of cover over that hole? I guess if the hole wasn't there, I could always use a hole saw and make one...

93Sport- Will you please take some pics when you do this and report back on what you find. I am really interested to see if you have this hole that lewy does on his '98.

Randy,

My 93 had the hole in the glass, as you see it. The pictures show the hole, internal structural member, the bow eye itself, and the cushion. The screws were located underneath the vinyl strip right in the middle of the bow. I had to push the vinayl aside and stick the screwdriver through the foam. I don't know how I will get them started back again. The nuts on my eye were backed completely off and were not even touching the deck. I don't know if this was a manufacturing oversight or a result of vibration, or a possible previous repair.

Sorry, I can't seem to post the pictures. When I tried to upload them to server, it said I did not have proper priviledges. I will try again later. If there is a secret to posting, let me know. I don't do enough of it to remember how.

Phillip

Wow, that last picture was large. Sorry about that.




This shows the Vinyl strip which I had to push aside to reach the screws.


I hope these help. The pictures made all the difference for me.

Randy you have to remove the fibreglass seat insert as it covers that hole.

You could always come over while mine is out and have a look. Plenty of cold beer in the fridge and a nice BBQ area for you to conjure up one of those roast racks I have seen.

I think I understand now. I must have been feeling the back of the seat insert, like lewy said, when I put my hand up behind that vinyl strip with the logo on it. I'm going to get this apart this winter and tighten that thing down, it's been driving me crazy for years! the funny thing is I have asked this question more than once here and even call CC and could not figure this out until Lewy posted the pics! I even tried to send one of my boys up there under the bow seat with a wrench to try to tighten it! I knew there had to be an access hole up there!

Philip, Why did you have to remove the entire lifting ring to tighten it? couldn't you have just stuck a wrench through the hole and tighten it down?

Thanks for clearing this up for us Lewy. You know I would love to get over there and enjoy some cold beer and BBQ with ya mate!

Randy,

Just me being anal. I took it out and cleaned the threads. I also used 5200 to attached the 3/4" plywood spacer to the underside of the deck.

Based on the random location and gel craacking of the screw holes, I'll bet they just jammed a screw through the foam and drove it home, no pilot hole. These are only to keep the cushion from popping up?

Yeah that is pretty lame. Maybe for re-install they should put a stud through the back of the glass sticking towards the cushion. Then slide the cushion over it and cap it with a t-nut or something like that. It will take some measuring and a few fit tests to get the stud the right length so it isn't poking someone in the back.

Being anal myself, I'm sure I'll do the same.    Good Idea on the 5200 to attach the plywood to the underside of the deck

I agree. I wouldn't worry too much about trying to find the holes again, and would probably just drill new pilot holes and screw them in.

I finally got this done. It wasn't too bad after I finally found the screws up front. Big thanks to Lewy and Philip for figuring this out.

One thing I can add. If I were to pull the coaming pad out again I would try to leave the front screws in the coaming pad, just about a 1/4 inch or so... I did this on one of the screws and was able to re-use the original hole. I tried to put the screw back in the second hole but couldn't get it back in there so I had to drill a new one. stripped a screw head in the process then burnt my finger on it! But it's all back together and tight now! Thanks!

I thought you would be too busy starting up north canton customs to finish that job.

My 03 SAN has a thru bolt through the back rest secureed by nut & washer from behind the glass.

Those screws look like a PITA.!

Bump,

For one year I have been trying to figure out how to get too the two speakers that are in my play-pin to upgrade them. I was directed to this post from Planet Nautique.
