I upgraded the footbrace in my Jensen 18 to one of the sliding footbraces that Wenonah installs on all their new boats. I've owned a bunch of other Wenonahs before the new footbrace came along and I always attached some spare screws and wing nuts in some of the extra holes on the aluminum angle. I have lost screws and wing nuts but never a whole footbrace. I race with my canoes and use footstraps on the brace and that keeps the two halves together.
