Corrosion

Corrosion on sailing yachts or motor boats is a common problem.
One type of corrosion is rust in ferrous metals.
Aluminum is a non ferrous metal frequently used in boat building.
A form of corrosion for aluminum is galvanic corrosion (electrolysis).
Regardless of what type, corrosion causes serious damage to the materials.
All sailing yachts and motor boats should be inspected periodically by a qualified marine surveyor to detect corrosion at an early stage.
