From the Back Cover:

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 Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion offers the most comprehensive and authoritative coverage available on how you can protect and preserve your boat from the ravages of corrosion, including

  • An explanation of the processes that cause corrosion
  • The properties, uses, and corrosion resistance of marine-grade metals
  • How to avoid corrosion by changing your construction materials, using structural designs that prevent moisture and dirt collection, and properly applying protective coatings
  • How to control corrosion in your critical systems--propulsion, electrical, plumbing--and in your hull, deck gear, masts, and rigging
