    Not happy with Yamaha (rusted bolts)

    This boat has never been in the ocean or even been in a state that has an ocean, yet the rusting of bolts/nuts is insane. What can I fog with to help??? By the way it’s a one owner 2016 FZR..

    Is the hull interior allowed to air dry after riding?

    Is there water seeping in during riding, and then allowed to sit there long afterwards?

    I’ve owned several brands over the last 25 years never saw anything like this. Never rode salt. I think the bolts are much cheaper these days...

    You would think that all watercraft would come with nothing but stainless.

    My 2017 GP 1800 doesn’t have a speck of rust anywhere.

    It’s not as bad as the Polaris rust but still aggravating! They are stainless too just cheap!

    No. Polaris did use stainless bolts on everything. Never an issue
