Anyone have an idea or solution for T-top wobble due to screws that have become loose ?The screws at feet or base of T-top or where top supports are affixed to floor of boat. Screws simply spin and not holding top down and therefore wobble .

Thanking one and all in advance for your suggestions and help. !

I've filled holes with a cut off piece of a zip tie, kind of like on a wood screw when a hole is to big and you put a toothpick in it. I'm sure there is a better fix from someone!!

Get on thehulltruth.com and ask on there. Someone will know a good answer.

You might be able to take the T-top off and fill the holes with 3M 5200 and let it dry and then remount it. Or without taking the top off you could probably put 3M 4200 in the holes and then put the screws back in and let it dry.

Or can you use the next size up screw?

Through bolt them with a backing plates and add side braces from the t-top to the console.

Fill the holes with an epoxy like marine-Tex. Then drill the holes to the proper size and you should be good to go.
