[QUOTE=Soulflyer1980;1990119]Hey there, recently broke an original Aluminum
Stanchion Base on my Bahia and tested a second one for stability and found it corroded to bits inside too. Was checking out different options to replace them (and all others for that matter) and came to manufacturing my own design in laser cut A4 SS. I'm still haggling about the final price
per piece but it looks like it's gonna be something around 35€ per piece. Is anybody interested or in the need of having their bases exchanged into a fine designed and manufactured SS part? I added a 12mm hole on the side for quick attachment of fenders or other shackle things, any ideas for uses
does it fit any other models then the Bahia?
Yours looks a bit sharp around the edges. I like the hole but I'd make it larger. Ours were all bent & kinked (previous owner - hurricane
Ivan). I had larger tube added with beveled cut to distribute the stresses. The old stanchion is welded to the old bases with the larger tube-socket. Very successful, looks good, stronger than the original, low cost.
