No moisture and no conductivity, therefore, no electrolysis. I'll replace whatever wood needs it and CPES the rest.
Yeah bronze prices are outta sight, but still not much compared to the labor.

Charlie, I wonder about new coatings on galvanised bolts too. I wonder about dipping them in epoxy or powder coating them less the threads. Dose any one have information on the subject.
