I just had my 43 year old boat at Baja Naval
boatyard last week. The planks were loose
at the transom, so I asked for a carpenter to
refasten them. The teak plugs were removed,
and the screw heads twisted right off.
Baja Naval made a sister frame which got
epoxied to the original transom frame and
the planks were drilled and screwed.
I talked to my dad after the fact and he told
me to look for a special drill bit that looks
like a tube and drills around the screw.
Anyone know where to get such a thing? I
could have avoided the sister frame and extra
holes in my planks.
