13 screws to take apart, unlucky number and way to many!OzBungy wrote: ↑Tue Apr 25, 2017 4:02 amJ Shapes has 4 screws for a full pack down. The Liquid Force had 13.
The other reason is that I did not want to mess around with all the water that drained out of the Liquid Force mast. I have quite a nice car and the last thing I want is salt water to drip all over the interior.
The only problem I have found is that cheap hex keys can chew out the head of the screw. I now have a couple of high quality hex keys and a heap of spare screws so that is no longer a problem.
Doesn't your foil clean itself everytime you ride it?junebug wrote: ↑Tue Apr 25, 2017 3:22 amI ride a LF Rocket Fish in salt water. In the spring-fall, I ride about 3-4 times a week. I rinse it with a healthy dose of fresh water after every use. I disassemble it about once every 6-8 weeks, clean it with a degreaser (Blaster), slather Tef Gel on every screw, and put plumbers' tape on the interior mast to plate screws to get them nice and snug. So far, I don't see any signs of serious corrosion. I used to disassemble and clean once a month, but I'm lazy and I want to push it as long as I reasonably can.
Does this sound about right? How frequently do you disassemble and clean your foil?
