Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Side Windows loose screws

Hello Herbert,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I encountered the same problem on my SM when I recaulked the side windows.
First option: The screws are not long enough to traverse into the wood trim on the inside of the cabin. Procure various length M6 screws and drill through to the inside. Pack with lots of Sikaflex and finish the work with a nice looking ball nut on the wood trim.
Other option: this is what I did. Make the hole bigger, but no larger in diameter than the width of the SS strip (about 14 MM if memory serves me right), clean out the wet balsa with a nail bent to 90 degrees on the end of your drill, fill with epoxy then drill a pilot hole where needed and reuse the original hardware.
