Bavaria stanchion question

Late response but hopefully it helps someone:
Loose stanchions is pretty common on certain generations of Bavaria sailboats.
It's easily fixed once you gained access to the inside of the fitting. Just add a rubber washer and a big stainless washer and tighten it.

Rain water can easily penetrate through loose stanchions and it's not always easy to see where it comes in so I would recommend getting it fixed (I've fixed all looses stanchions on my 2001 Bavaria 47)
