"The best explanation that I have seen of corrosion on boats."--Nigel Calder, author of Boatowner's Mechanical and Electrical Manual
"A powerful weapon in the war against metal deterioration."--Cruising World
Corrosion is a constant, often expensive, and sometimes dangerous problem for boaters. Moisture, salt, electrical currents, and chemicals create a potent combination that can attack the metallic (and sometimes nonmetallic) parts of your boat. Everett Collier, an expert in marine technology, details all the types of corrosion--including simple galvanic, electrochemical, and electrolytic--and explains how to identify, combat, and prevent them. The most comprehensive book on this subject, The Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion shows you how to:
- Prevent corrosion with proper grounding, cathodic protection, protective coatings, and careful selection and matching of metal parts
- Protect your boat's hull, deck gear, masts, and rigging, as well as its propulsion, electrical, plumbing, and steering systems
- Recognize and cure developing corrosion before it can damage your boat
