XM 230 inflatable tender

I have one of these but cannot get the rowlocks off to change the paddles. They are through the paddle type and unscrew so far. However, after that you can turn it forever and it still does not come off.

Any knowledgable folks out there (especially any dealers) who can give me some advice?

Many thanks

Ian

When it's turning "forever" and doesn't come off, is the shaft that goes through the rowlock stationary, or is it tuning with the knob on top?

Hi Bruce:

The shaft appears to be turning with the knob on top. It loosened off about 4mm on the shaft from full tight then takes the turn for ever approach.

Thank you

Ian

That's your problem - the shaft is supposed to be fixed to the boat. Sounds like you need to hold the shaft with some slim pliers or similar then unscrew the knob.

Sounds like the thread has had a little knock at the end, do like Richards says,
or you could always buy mine on e bay at the moment, oars unbolt no problem.

Thanks Blindog but I'll save my pennies as I already have a new set of oars to go on. I actually managed to get the things apart yesterday by cutting the plastic "collar" off the old oars as this allowed me to get a set of mole grips on the shaft. Hey presto came apart easy then.

Thank you all for your help.

Ian
