    i need to buy 3 each of the end housing screw (#33) that holds the right side of a single speed JX in place. anyone got spares? does ftu carry them?

    i went out in 2' to 3' waves yesterday and the assembly fell apart in the rod holder. hopefully nothing else is missing or damaged. gonna have to tighten them screws on a regular basis with the rough seas we're having.

    Yes, I would not be surprised if they dropped them in the envelope and shipped them to you at no charge. This is very normal for them.

    Yeah, Joe Livingston called me up & invited me out to Venice for next
    weekend, but I'm out, cause I used up all my vacation time recuperating
    from the shoulder thing! thinking real hard about september w/ Eddie, but
    I've still got the TFF/ Big E trip in Nov. are you going this year?
