I need to make a run to Wolf's soon so we can probably meet up. I think I found some of the round ones. I would post a picture but they are all at the polishing shop.

I took the round ones holding the rails on the side of the flybridge and tried to have them powder coated and it did not work. Not sure if that is a funky kind of cast aluminum or what, but i sandblasted them and clear coated. They are not as shiney as stainless, but good enough for who they are for. Hate drilling holes in my boat, but all of the new fittings have different hole patterns. I'm at Wolfs just about everyweek picking up somthing - just let me know.

Does anybody else have thin rubber gaskets between their stantion bases and deck? Mine had very thin rubber gaskets with an adhesive on one side. I don't think I have seen this on other Marinettes.

As Carl points out, they were standard. I replaced mine at painting time with 1/8" thick neoprene for greater durability and separation. But an entirely different and, I think, better approach is to put nylon or neoprene spacers/washers around the attaching screws so water can run through and drain freely. Other thoughts on this?
