    >>>remove cleats that are bi-metal corroded

    The mooring cleats on the boat were corroded ugly, but Schaefer changed the footprint so changing them out would be a mess.

    So I sanded them ruthlessly till they got all, I believe the tech term is, smooth and shiny-like.

    A touch with 200-grit every year and they still look good. I could also, I suppose, actually polish them.

    (so: if you can by any chance save yours it eliminates impossible bolts and sticking backing plates and a really awkward job)
