    Have you done anything to fix it yet? I called the dealer and they basically said it just happens. I wasn't really satisfied with their answer and am thinking of taking it in and fixing it under warranty. Or, removing it, cleaning it out, and trying to seal it against further rust.

    I've seen a number of other boats with the same problem. My understanding is to truly fix it would require upgrading to a higher quality piece of hardware. I have no desire to do that personally.

    Same problem on mine. Its not a fix, but a Mr. Clean Magic eraser takes the rust marks off very easily.

    I took mine in under warranty. They tried to say it happens in salt water. I said not with ten hours on a brand new boat. They are going to replace under warranty hopefully.

    I would think the part most and first exposed to water, any water, would resist rust. I'm thinking of bringing it in or unscrewing it myself. So far, my solutions have been better than theirs!

    There is something with the material and fitting on the bow eye.
    I had the same thing happen to me from the start and I only boat in saltwater.
    I had to bring mine in for a fiberglass repair right under the bow eye for a factory imperfection that I did not.Catholic upon delivery , and since that repair and 80 hours of saltwater use, I don't have any rust around the bow eye.

    Backing plate is garbage material. Hard to replace, above was fixed correctly it seems.

    It would seem so. I'm thinking of taking it in or looking at it myself.
