TC 17 ProPlat difficulty in 3d subtraction

I have an issue with some some subtraction from a revolved solid.  on the right is a lofted solid, which has been "surface to solid" modified, as is the object on the left.  The one on the right leaves a ghost in the revolve, after subtraction, when rendered.  The one on the left gives no problem, showing the desired penetration.  I hope some clarity can be given, I have attached the selected object.  I have lofted and subtracted this form repeatedly without success.
Thanks in advance for the look-see.

On a quick look, the right-hand loft appears to have a loose string floating. I would redo the loftings, this time set it as a Solid from the start. I tried "Format / SAT Healing" and it says "The result of the healing has bad geometry".
