(Virginia Beach, Va)
Have a 1960s Grand Banks 32 that needs refastening not because of obvious problems but because it's been 40 years.
In the interest of conservation of limited funds ( as I can't do the work myself) is it acceptable, to simply put new screws in without disturbing the old fastenings.
My goal obviously isn't a classic restoration but rather to have a safe secure hull.
There is no current evidence of problems but it's likely that after 40 years there's a lot of crevice corrosion in the existing fastenings.
Can I get by by adding new screws?
