Salt to Fresh

It shouldn’t be Carl.

The salt in seawater does help to protect the wood from rot but only in the wetted areas.

Of course it does depend on the type of boat and how long she is going to be left in the water.

One thing you might want to consider is changing the anodes from zinc to magnesium or an alloy of aluminium, zinc and indium.

That is why I have introduced the new Your Pages.

This is new ‘Community’ platform is for 2018.

It is designed to put you in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as and when you wish to.

There is also a forum where you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in the conversations.
So, please come on over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
