I will certainly not claim to be an expert, but there are many people who believe exactly what you describe (rust is a warning sign of a deeper problem with stainless fittings).

Very wise of Jill to proactively manage this, in a very organized manner.

Thanks Sam! Ding I'll remember that smile
To be fair it is the reason I switched to a C2 as well. Jill and AHPC really stand by their product as any manufacturer should.
Gunnar and I are committed to doing the same for Nacra.
The new shroud bolt is Nearly twice the size of the old one. It snaps with no notice (we nearly lost our rig but it snapped going into a tack so I saw it and aborted the tack before the rig came down). Other point is make sure it is perpendicularly pointing towards mast so it doesn't size load the tang.

I'm about positive your boat has not had this changed out.


I'm boatless.

If you're not looking for an excuse to travel to FL, I'm sure we can knock that out ;-)

The bolts on my C2 are about an inch wide, they are from my memory larger than the bolts on Mac's 2009 Viper. Does this mean I already have the upgraded bolts?

are they the same size as the chain plates for the bridle. If they are bigger than the bridle then it's been upgraded.
