We have two new 2018 Revo 13's and want to install Sidekicks and go sailing. I know we will be using the well-nuts.
(1) Should I use locktite or some other strong bonder in the hole I drill for the well nuts to help hold them in place?
(2) I have heard people complaining about well nuts failing - if they became loose couldn't I just knock them out and remove and replace them very easily?


Rigging for sailing
(1) I want to run the mainsheet past the seat and turn it around on a pulley -so we are pulling it from the front not the back. Anybody have any pics (or advice) of their rigging that might be helpful?

Thanks - Love these forums... Lots of people here seem to know their stuff!

Well nuts are an expanding rubber plug. Tight enough and they don't leak. It the hole is drilled to large... they could slip.

Hi

I put mine in this way (more or less :roll: )





Laborious but worth it.
