Just guessing, but perhaps the bolt and nut are dissimilar metals and the ambient moisture serves as an electrolyte. Also possible battery acid is wicking up between the post and case.

Perhaps you meant *publicly funded* robust access.



Registration fees are paid to the state, not the town, arenít they?

Ragged island overnight

My understanding is you can sleep on a boat that is not anchored. Docked is legal. If your boat is tied to a tree, itís legal. Youíd need permission from the landowner to use the tree.
