They're the no1 cause of leaks down below
Thanks to the irritating habit of well-meaning pontoon dwellers who insist on fending off using the tops of your stanchions, stanchion bases tend to leak. Badly. So, if you’ve got mysterious leaks inside and you suspect they’re from deck level, it’s well worth re-seating the stanchion bases. Even better, put a large plywood pad under the deck to take the loads from over-enthusiastic fender-offers!
