remove 733 front tow post?

Hi,

I'm getting ready for the big flip and I want to remove the front tow post. I see lots of bolts but didn't know what hardware was on the other side. I see some but not sure what's attached and whats going to spin/fall off.

Thanks,
Jason

I agree, they are relly hard to get out. Most likely you will have to drill out the hardware from the top. Those bolts are not going anywhere.
I want to put my name in the hat for that post once you get it off!
Im in San Diego, where are you?

Oh it's not going anywhere. I just want to flip the hull and it looked like life would be easier with it off. Maybe I won't mess with it. Maybe Ryan will chime in, I think he removed and replaced his, I'll go check his build thread now.

Just checked looks Ryan never took his out. I will have to deal with it.

It can't be easy. Mine was cut off by the navy before it was sold. Then again, it was used to mount a 50 cal.

FYI. if you leave it on with the transom cap their will be no glass touching which will make it much easier to prep/paint.

thanks all, i am just going to leave it on.

I hate not having any limitations to work with. every little thing can become a giant project. I need to get done with this or it's going to drive me, and all of you, nuts.
