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.

The second edition of this unique book is intended to be of use to boatowner and boatbuilder alike, giving advice on common problem areas and suggesting strategies for reducing or preventing corrosive effects.
