Default pitting on t top support pipes

Anyone have any pitting on their piping that supports the fiberglass t tops?

I own a 23 2007 regulator and I'm the second owner. I have taken good care of it for the past 4 years of ownership. It came with the pitting. I have seen other regulators of around my year and seen the same thing.

I look at other brands of boats of the same vintage ( Grady White ) etc and their pipes are not pitted at all.

I'm wondering if it was the company that Regulator used at that time that didn't produce proper quality

The pitting that is there will remain but you can prevent any further pitting by applying Sheila Shine. I have been using it since purchasing my Reg and pitting has not increased.

My 2011 has it and I tried Woody's Wax and Star Brite. It still happens. Will try the Sheila Shine. Thanks Bill

Scrubbing your aluminum with a green scouring pad after each trip can help a lot, keeps it from building up.
