Re: H28 mini milestone
Larks - you mentioned earlier a mix of copper and stainless bolts. It might be worth looking into that a bit - stainless can have problems at any time in an anerobic environment - leading to crevice corrosion ... and when mixed with other metals below the waterline you essentially have a big battery, corroding one of the metals.
I went through Grantala, removing every bit of stainless I could find that was within a foot of the waterline or below. Check it out yourself with a multimeter when the boat is in the water - measure the voltage between dissimilar metals in the wet zone.

I'd rather look back at my life and say "I can't believe I did that" instead of being there saying "I wish I'd done that"
