Kyosho Fortune 612 boat screws rust

Why would they build a boat that uses screws that rust. These boats ain't 50 dollars these cost some money. Who sells replacement screws in stainless? Ron

My local ACE & True Value hardware stores carry a nice selection of stainless steel screws and bolts.

Good question. The answer is simple, they save money by using plated fasteners.
Easy fix = apply a light coat of clear finger nail polish on the screws that are exposed to water.
If they have a little rust on them you can pour some coke (cola) on them and let it do it's thing - rinse well then put the finger nail polish on them.
Cheap fix and it works.
