Re: Prepping to re-bed stanchions.

I just rebed my toe rails...there are 90 of them(fasteners)


80 or so per side where fine...

the 10 that needed were replaced...

thats how that works

I must add there are a lot more loads on stanchions if used correctly than on toerails...so I agree if you can youd do well getting new ones, but remember new is not always better especially regarding rigging and metals...
