Stripped bolt issues on the ski pole cross mount where they bolt into the stringers, can anyone tell me if there is any wood in those stringers and if not what is the best fix.

To the best of my knowledge MasterCraft has no wood, all is aluminum reinforced composite. I have a '98 Prostar 190 and asked that same question of the MasterCraft Co. and was assured that my boat had NO wood. That was only one reason I switched from Nautique to MC. I do believe that Correct Craft now is all composite too; just to give them a fair shake. As far as the best fix, maybe a "Heli-Coil" threaded insert would do the trick, otherwise I'm sure someone will chime in here soon. This is the best site for help.

As stated, no wood. However, I think there are metal inserts in the strings for the bolts. You should be able to see in the hole. I'd spray it down with some WD-40 to clean out whatever is in there so you can get a better look.

Solution? Possibly there is enough metal to run a bottom tap in there and clean up the threads?

Good point on the bottom tap. (Longer bolt)

That's possibly an added fix! The combination of the two might end in drinks and smiles!
