brak is on a distinguished road
interesting point. depends, perhaps, on a type of stanchion base. On my boat stanchion bases are triangular metal plates with tube welded on. Stanchion inserts into that tube. Any water that enters the base will stay in this tube like a cup and does not come in contact with the deck. Perhaps you could do something like that on your boat - seal the actual base rather than a stanchion? Depends on a type and design of the base of course.
