The Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion: A Complete Reference for Boatowners and Marine Professionals

International Marine Publishing

PUB-9780071475440

By Everett Collier

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
