Hi Gary,

How long was it between the time that Amel installed the bolts and you had to tighten them again?

I had mine done by them in November.

When I had my foil and forestay repaired at Amel Martinique they replaced the rivets with threaded bolts.  I want to say 10mm  They did install backing plates to reinforce the contact points. Tef-Gel and one additional tightening since then, but it has not loosened due to flex and there i no corrosion to date.
