The bolts on the mantus are galvanized. You ARE right that the bolts are another potential point of failure and another point to inspect. Personally I feel they are so overbuilt that it's not an issue, but I will have to inspect them once in a while.

What about welds, like on a rocna (the mantus has welded joints too)? Welds can go bad if not done correctly and are "technically" a point of failure too and should probably be inspected. That said, I never really worry about welds except for stainless...
