Re: Older FP stanchion bases

Did anything ever come from this? As I am now looking for Stanchion bases for my FP Lavezzi.

Re: Older FP stanchion bases

Just to close the loop, we ended up having a Stainless guy in Pensacola, Florida, customize a stainless stanchion base that fits in the FP aluminum base location and uses the existing single bolt from below the deck. Easy to install. Expensive compared to the ones supplied by FP but for us it was worth it. Almost all of our original stanchion bases had corroded to powder on the inside. Granted, our Bahia46 is a 2001 and was probably used hard as a charter before we bought it. I'm sure nobody went to the trouble of rinsing the stanchions with fresh water on a regular basis.

Price was $140usd per stanchion base with the extra braces welded on. Yes, expensive. But now we have stainless and no regrets. Here's a photo:

I know Multihull solutions have 4 or 5 of these in stock. They charge $75 order processing fee (thought they waived 50% of that) and the around $50 for the base. I bought one a few months ago.
