Description - The Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion by Everitt Collier

"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
