I have had all my toerail mounted stanchions removed because of corrosion. The bases were in steel and the toerail in aluminium. Now I have the new ones mounted on the deck just inside the toerail without any contact between the metals. It is also better because the toerail provide better protection if we get to close to (say) a pole. I have broken stachions that way...one...two...three...aaah BOAT = Bring Out Another Thousand.

I will fill in the corroded toerail and paint it one day. On my 40 foot boat it does not matter if you move the stanchions in a couple of inches (5-7 cm) but it may be a problem with others. I am very happy with having the two "divorsed"
