Help with Interior "Damage"

On my 2002 PS197, the console assy on the RH side w/throttle etc has a problem. The plastic has broken completely around 2 of the screwheads that secure it, and it's coming loose. It appears there are only 3 of these torx head ss screws on top, and one conventional screw near the floor that hold this piece to the hull.

I considered having a plate made (SS) that I could bond to the face of it, and run longer screws through - to avoid having to replace the entire assembly.

PROBLEM is that those torx head screws are secured by a nut on the other side, inside the hull, which can not be reached by human hand. I determined this by checking the only one that I can reach, furthest aft, which had a nut. Of course that one is not a problem.

Any suggestions other than just getting a dealer quote for replacement of the entire piece / assembly? I am sure this would be a fat invoice.

Drill them out and fill the holes with a fiberglass patch kit (or similar filler kit), then re-anchor in the preferred manner.

That said, hopefully the present anchors will stay in place in order to drill. A nice new (sharp) carbide-tipped drill tip should cut through the bolt with a slow steady progress.

This thread covers the basic same problem on another model boat that may help, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=25315

Ah ha, THANKS! Might as well check with dealer first based on Big Mac's experience. You never know, maybe I could get some partial concession.....

For what its worth, you can get your arm in there with a wrench. (7/16 if I remember correctly) and take that off. My arm was pretty scratched from fiberglass, but I pulled the panel off when I installed my stereo remote so that I could cut the hole and see what was behind it. It is not easy, but it can be done. I think I held on to the end of the wrench and was able to get it on the nut to take it off. I do not remember how I started the nuts when reassembling.

Did you get to it from behind the seat on the side??

On my boat, it was the middle bolt that was the problem. The rear one was pretty easy, the front one made a little easier by laying on one's back and reaching up after removing the driver's seat (be careful, that pedestal has grease on it).
