Skeg repair

Post by Louiro » Thu May 04, 2017 8:55 pm

My husband has a plastic north shore Atlantic.

He recently took apart the Skeg to clear it out, but unfortunately had to remove the metal end from the plastic tubing as it was corroded.

He has sourced a new metal fitting from valley, but can't seem to get it to grip the plastic tubing. It came out when he tried to feed the wire through the tube

Is there a knack to this, maybe heating up the metal washer or plastic tubing to form a better seal?

Any advice appreciated.

Perhaps worth a phone call to Valley to ask? (Phone - they're sometimes less responsive to email - - - )
