OK found out a bit more info today and not good news on my end. seems that the strut has been replaced which probably explains why the piece that is broken is the way it is. Anyway I'm going to pull it to make sure there is no real glass damage under there if there is fix it and 4200 it. In doing this does anyone have a procedure on how to properly align the strut so it is inline with the center of the boat. At this point I do not want to cut out the log as it might be in the proper place currently and the strut may be misaligned.

any help would be appreciated. thanks again

oh my oh my if there is a cover on the pylon kids check it out. So the corrosion had it so ballooned up that there was no way to pull it out. So I ended up having to unscrew the floor up around it. lift it up slightly, put a sawzall in between the floor and cross-member and cut it out. yes that is al dust in the second picture there.





and now some pictures of the corrosion and the dumb pylon embedded into the cross-member along with a few pictures showing how bad the pylon was











finally drilled a few holes on the bottom part of the pylon, got one side to slightly crush put a lot of heat on it and it finally came out. that was a pain.



then in the back end of the boat i had to remove the prop shaft so that i can get to the cutlass bearings and replace them. here it is seperated
