Stauchen Nuts and Socket Length
« on: July 16, 2017, 11:39:42 PM »
Hi,
Can anyone tell me the size of the nut on the stauchen bolts that pass thru the deck join. I need to know the socket size and length needed - memory says about 3/4"nut and at least 6" bolt depth.

Thanks, Roger - SV Merrily (yes she is sailing again and currently located in English Harbour Antigua)

I believe it is a 11/16 inch socket. Socket only worked for me in some locations. The mid ship and most forward stantions required removal of interior components to access the nuts. Not a fun project but we were thankful when completed. We had two stantions that had corroded and the threaded rod broke on removal.

Hi Roger, I took a couple off and replaced one a couple of months ago. The nuts were 1 5/16, see this thread.

Thanks for the replies. 1 5/16th looks about right to me when I checked at my local Supercheap tool rack.
