    Best solution I’ve found is to clean and re-bed the fitting
    Idk where all this SS is coming from (can guess), but seems to be problematic on even high end boats.
    I did fittings on NorTech and Fountain, and Imagine Invincible too if I ever get to use it.
    Not a big problem on Blackwood but it’s older
    ‘12 Blackwood - 300 Verado's (for sale)
    '17 Nor-Tech 340 - sold

      Sometimes you also need to Polish the mounting surface of the fitting.

        Yep.. Cheap SS from Asia somewhere, I am sure.. It rusts like crazy.. This fits in with the thread about "How many people take shortcuts?" https://www.bandofboaters.com/forum/...ake-a-shortcut

        They know good and well that getting "stainless" hardware that cheap isn't possible, but they just look the other way and when there is problems say, "Hmmm, not sure what happened.. It's supposed to be stainless".. Been there done that, got the T-shirt..

          Many alloys of stainless out there some suitable for marine use others not so much. Unless the alloy is specified calling it stainless is kinda meaningless...Charlie

              The rod holders/cup holders are even worse. I'll complain to Intrepid. Maybe they will switch vendors.

                304 SS.
                Hard to find a 316 SS cup holder, we work hard at it.

                  Yep.. And, even if you order 309, 316-316L SS, if it comes from Asia, it will likely be 304SS.. Happens to us all the time. We had to buy a special scanning device that would test metallurgy in everything we bought.. It has become a HUGE problem..

                  We have bought SS from American outfits that is supposed to be 904/904L, even Hastelloy C and it test out at 304 or lower..

                    Intrepid thinks perhaps our detailer is using a product like MaryKate On Off at full strength or only partially diluted.
                    She said no, and in fact said we have bleeding on our t-top where the outriggers are mounted as well.
