The boat had new stanchions when I bought her but they have never worked correctly leaving me with slack guardrail lines.
Once I had tightened it up the main bolt and put on a lock nut (omitted by the yard) the base was stable but however much you tighten up the connection between the stanchion and the base it went slack in no time.

gale force winds and some rain made it too much like hard work.
