On of the life line stanchions on the starboard side of our 385 became detached from the boat last night.  It looks like there's a part (Hanse calls it a Railing feet bolt: http://hanse.boatoon.com/en/relingsfussbolzen.html?boatmodel=4) with a solid tube above deck with a threaded rod that goes through the deck and into an aluminum plate below the deck.  Luckily for us, this stanchion base is over our "storage locker" on the aft starboard side so the backing plate is accessible.  I think I can remove the portion of threaded rod that sheared off below deck by locking two nuts or clamping the threads below deck and winding it out, but I was wondering if anyone knows if this part is available from a US distributor.  I don't want to wait for a new part to ship from Germany if I can get one locally.

Just wanted to reply that my local dealer was able to help out with replacement parts.  The threaded rod is 1/2".  The new stanchion has a nut for the set screw welded to the base and the new stanchion foot has a v-shaped indent to receive the set screw.  My original stanchion pole had a loose hole (not threaded) and the foot was threaded to receive a bolt.  So, I had to buy a replacement stanchion pole to match the new foot design.

I think the new design is better since the foot threads onto the exposed threads (old one was welded).  This allows you to get much more compression force through the deck to reduce sheer forces on the threaded rod going through the deck.
