Image result for screw starter
 

 

 

Joey all you needed was a screw starter. You can usually find them at Auto Parts stores.  Tape it to a wooden dowl you would have been all set.

 

Jeez, never even heard of this tool before.  Yeah, that would have helped a lot.

 

Needless to say, I'll be acquiring/ordering one today. Gotta have this for future reference.

Grew up with them.  My father was a mechanic and we used to use them all the time when working on cars trying to start screws in tough areas.  I have used the same one to start both Philips head and straight blade screws, but I believe they may make one special for Philips head.  

 

Great tool for cheap money.

Screws on boats are stainless so magnets are useless ..  It helps to put a piece of tape on the end of the screw to help it from falling out. Use the tip of a scrw driver to start a hole and finish off with drill ..btw I don't see any 4200 or 5200 used to seal the holes on the base .was that changed out?if so did you see any residue from any sealant from before. If not might be a good Time to do so.

Put 5200 in the holes (awkwardly) before I put the base down on top of the holes.  Didn't put any on the screws, but that's not a bad idea for future reference.  Didn't notice any residue on/around the old base or the screws.

read thru your whole post Joey glad you went with a good bedding compound below the water line I was going to suggest doing so looking at your photos especially this one. That you forgot to make up one screw.

 I find it odd not to see extra  bedding compound squishing out in this photo. I was going to suggest 3M 4200  but what is done is done. Might not be a bad idea to back out all the screws out before putting the boat in service and putting a good coat of compound on the screw threads and turn them up tight for a good seal. You don't need water working on your hull especially if it has any wood in it.

 

Smooth sailing and a full fish box

Boat went in 3 weeks ago.  We fished Opening Day.

 

I do take it out in early April to do the bottom paint (too cold in February), so I may revisit this pump then.
