Glad some of you with more recent Jeanneau's are figuring this BIG issue out.
If you're like Minne, in fresh water, not as big a deal. BUT if in salt water in a HOT marina or your ground etc is not that good. You will have issues with the chrome plated brass fittings that came std from Jeanneau.
There have been multiple posts at the jeanneau-owners forum site on this issue.
I've bought all new thru hulls for my 85. These appear to be a normal bronze. I'm going with flush Marlon thru hulls and valves.

Jeanneau 54DS

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Maybe you have gotten a few more years if you have to pull in the winter vs being in water all year.......
