Boat Summary: "White Sand", Hull #167. Panama City, Fl, 1989FB

A coffee colored fluid randomly leaks past the access grommets (to get to foredeck handrails). This fluid streaks the headliner and occasionally a drop or two of fluid hit the bunk. Three grommets leak, # 3 aft port side, #3 & 4
(galley) starboard. I re bedded the foredeck handrails and bow rail two years ago. Previous owner installed snap buttons around the interior of the forward hatch for a bug screed. When I removed the 12 snaps, all of the screw threads were coffee/rust colored. When moored, the forward windows are covered with sunbrella. No signs of leaks on interior of the forward windows. No signs of leaks in the cubby holes or carpeting. Sunshine always brings on condensation on the cabin ceiling after rain or days of high humidity. If condensation is forming between the headliner and the fore deck this would explain the staining. Anyone else having this problem? Hate the thought of re bedding the front windows for peace of mind. Thanks, Larry

Two thoughts, first I would get a moisture meter and check the foredeck and cabin roof. You may have trapped moisture and will have to have the area opened and cleaned out if the water is excessive. second stainless steel is just that stain-less. There are many different grades of stainless. After time all stainless will start to rust. Replace the screws with screws from a marine hardware dealer.
