  1. We dry stack our boat at a local marina. The marina crew clean below the waterline and flush engines with haul out after each use. It's a beautiful boat, brand new, and we want it to look that way for a long time. Also prior the marina crew handling, we clean above the waterline and all of the topside with freshwater and boat brush. The boat was detailed prior to delivery 3 months ago, but we are already seeing rust at the base of the cleats, steel grab bars and swim ladder. Locker pulls, hinges and screws are fine (including the floor). We have a wax and detail scheduled in a couple of weeks, but I was surprised to see rust in just 3 months. We caught it early, but I'm worried it will be a constant battle over time. Has anyone else had this experience?
