While this is a tad late to the discussion, yes the ACMO turnbuckles are chrome plated bronze....and that chrome plating is my concern. I had Caribe Greement in Martinique replace Annie's rigging in 2017. Shortly afterward the chrome on the turnbuckles began
to look weathered even though we rinsed them and kept them clean. Here is a picture of the main mast backstay turnbuckle, the one in the cockpit. This one is out of the weather and the chrome is pretty much done. Has anyone else had this issue?
