Dave's Comments

A few years ago I became involved with the restoration and completion of a 65 foot steel schooner. One issue with the boat has been chronic hull corrosion. It was time to learn more about corrosion, its causes, and it cures if the vessel was to sail again. Collier's book, The Boatowner's Guide to Corrosion came highly recommended for good reason. Collier takes the time to explain the causes of corrosion in a manner that can be understood by the average sailor. If you own a boat that has metal in the water and want to know how to preserve your boat, Collier's book should be on your bookshelf.

 

Product Description

“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
