Aka deconstruction

The akas are now off the boat, and the hinges have been removed from the center tubes.  This involved much grinding of broken stainless steel bolts, aluminum tubing, and PG-13 language.  I have the hinge/outer aka assemblies at work, where we have a decently sized drill press and a big hydraulic press, and one of they guys in the shop is going to drill out the bolts on the outer tubes, and press out the corroded hinge pivot bolts (I have to actually WORK at work, so I’m subcontracting this job out!)  I’ll post pictures over the weekend, as I can’t even get away from my desk long enough to take any this morning!
