Re: Is this Crevice Corrosion or a Bad Casting?

Anything can be broken with enough force.

When installing any high-load item, as I mentioned in your other thread, it is important to fit a proper backing plate and spacer.

1st rule of yachting: When a collision is unavoidable, aim for something cheap.
