Attached a picture of two bolts - the one on the right is the worst one, that flake of rust came off the top. The one on the left actually doesn't look too bad there is healthy looking metal under a layer of some sort of grease or protective coat.
Apparently the bolts were changed in 2005 as I found a note indicating so.
The bolts are not leaking but there has been water
in the bildge as the shower
water has been directed there for some years.
I've found several similar descriptions about Beneteaus on the internet
(may I post links here to other forums
?), so apparently its a common thing, but it seems the bolts are usually rigid, its just the top of the bolts that suffers, and apparently the keel bolts on Beneteaus are ment to be replaced frequently.
But what I'd need is the specs for the bolts so I can have them made or bought.
E-mailed two Beneteau dealers on two continents and no reply so far. Or if anyone can provide me with a proper contact info to Beneteau or a helpful dealer - preferably e-mail as I'm in Malaysia
(on Beneteau website they say to contact the dealers..)
I don't want to start to unscrew them before having the correct new ones.
