Metal Corrosion in Boats: The Prevention of Metal Corrosion in Hulls, Engines, Rigging, and Fittings
Understanding metal corrosion and its prevention is vital for the safety and integrity of a boat. Failure through corrosion or fatigue can result in masts falling down, keels falling off or boats quietly sinking in their moorings. Less dramatic are such problems as pitting or fracture of propeller shafts, erosion of pipe work, rusting of steel hulls and galvanic corrosion of aluminum ones.
