Alexandre,   Stainless bolts
into stainless plate tend to gawl and seize unfortunately.
 It's why most turnbuckles have bronze bodies and
stainless studs.  In the event that you actually remove the
plate consider replacing with silicon  bronze and you
won't have fight to remove the bolts in the future.
 The best source I know of is Atlas Metals for the bronze
plate.  If you keep the stainless plate, never seize does
help prevent problems.  Best of luck. James

Hello Mark,



But as Bill said mine and your model are older and use a
different base…

Nice repaid on your side!

How did you see/access the steel plate under the
fiberglass?

I still would like to remove the broken bolt and put a new
one!!!

Eric,

 Alexandre is correct. Jabsco changed

the design of the part and did not change the part number.
I

searched high and low for an old style base and am
convinced

none are available.

 I had the same issue with the

cracking bases. I removed the old base and used
fiberglass

mat and resin to repair it. So far so good. Both bases

cracked. The older repair is now going on two years
(aft).

The forward head was recently repaired.

 To remove the base you will need to

back out the four bolts holding it. There are no nuts on
the

underside. Under the fiberglass floor is a stainless
steel

plate and the bolts go into threaded holes into this
plate.

 Be careful not to force the bolts!!!!

They will break (ask me how I know this). Use some lube
and

be VERY patient.

 Hope this helps.

     With best

regards,  Mark  Super Maramu

Subject: Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Toilet

base forward head    Good morning Eric,



I had the same problem (base

cracked).

I was able to unscrew the nuts

off the bolts (the bolt seems to me part of the
fiberglass

bottom and unfortunately I broke one)

The

main problem is that I was not able to find a
replacement

base… The exact part number is now a different base
which

will not fit…

So I glue the old one

together and apply it with 4200.

Hope

someone get a better answer…

The base of the toilet of my forward head is

cracked.

I would like to

replace it but it

seems to be through bolted

and

I do not see

any access.

Does anyone know how to access the bolts or are

they

set in some material to

hold them in

place?
