A friend of mine just bought a new to him 2006 2002 WA with a small cuddy. In the cuddy is a pedestal table. No problem removing the table surface, but the pedestal is being disagreeable on coming out. We don't want to yank too hard, in the event its threaded in, but it doesn't seem to want to turn either. Any input as to how the pedestal is supposed to be removed would be appreciated.

Every boat I have ever owned these are not threaded.
They are tapered, which means the harder you push it in the stronger the bond.
Sounds like someone may of sat on table and pushed it in very hard.
Plus being aluminum it can oxidize or swell.

Try just rocking it back and forth and/or spray some PB blaster in the crevice.

Worst case scenario you can unbolt the plate from floor to bang it from the bottom!

I've had the same problem in Saint Max in the cockpit. Try some keyboard cleaner. Hold the can upside down so the contents comes out as a liquid. It is extremely cold. Have a partner rock and pull on the pedestal pole at the same time. The cold should shrink both the metal in the pole and the base enough to break the bond. I put a thin coating of vaseline or the like on the pole. That has seemed to help.


Best Regards,
