Thumbs down Can I tighten down on 3700 SCR radar arch?

1999 3700 SCR radar arch - the winter was not kind to it. Snow and/or water gathered on the cover at the bow and put too much weight on the arch. I now have a small gap toward the aft where the arch meets the hull on one side. If I push down on the arch over the gap it closes. My fear is the fiberglass at the base of the arch may have been stressed, but am hoping someone out here can provide some insight and possibly suggestions. Thanks!

Iím not fimilar with this model but I suspect the threaded studs may have pulled out of the fiberglass. Youíll need to determine how to access below the arch and try to tighten but the arch may need to be removed to make the repair.

I do fix similar problem.
Buy some fiberglass jelly.
I suggest to remove the studs. Mix some jelly and apply in the hole.
reinstall the studs and wait 24 hours before apply any repression.
This will work 100%. Good luck.
