Darndest thing happened to me yesterday after colliding with a not-that-big wave. Three screw heads sheared off screws that hold two of the vertical stanchions for the Montauk bow railing. The screw head separated from the shank on three screws at the same time. One stanchion is no longer attached to the hull, the other only has one screw holding it. I will be taking it to the dealer to repair. I would think the dealer will drill them out.

Has this happened to anyone else?
