You should not need to Galvanize Stainless

This is also an are where the prep work prior to painting is more responsible than the paint for the results. You can use the liquid galvinize paint but it's not going to do much more for you than any other good paint after scraping, brushing, cleaning and drying the affected areas. While you're at it; a bit of ospho on the rust wouldn't hurt either.

This is what I use. There are a hundred others out there. Flitz, Maguire's, etc. Good Stainless should not rust.

Thanks Mike,
I was just joking, poor reference to the latest anchor galvinized v stainless thread.

You know, Mike I was wondering about that. But you are such a nice guy and all. I didn't think you were going there.

I thought that depriving SS of air was not a good idea over the long term.
We replaced the aft chain plate on my boat that had stainless bolts encased in fiberglass for 30 odd years. The bolts were unrecognizable as stainless steel and were rusted and pitted.
I have seen the keel bolts on Bene505's boat. The heads of the bolts stick up from the floor of the bilge and there is some slight rusting here and there. The rusting appears to be cosmetic at this point.
I think that Sway means Naval Jelly or phosphoric acid when he says 'ospho' which will remove the rust from the bolts (hardware store, HD etc).
I am not sure whether painting or the use of grease on these bolts would be the best approach. Certainly, keeping the bilges dry would be a step in the right direction. Some solar powered vents might help remove moisture.

Yes Caleb, you are correct. There is very slight rusting on the edges of the stainless steel boats. With all the rusty bolts I've seen, I don't want ours to go that route. If the bolts are wet, then a little zinc would help. If they are dry, then zinc wouldn't hurt. Not sure I want to go with grease for the reason you typed.
