when taking my yatcht onto the open I always have to wash it down obviously cause of the salt water. I remember recently the I overheard or read somewhere there is a solution that can be applied to your boat to stop the salt eating away at it...
has anyone else heard of this or know more information, would be geat! :D
There is a US product called salt away, until recently one couldn’t buy it in EU because it did not have approval though it could be bought through Jersey. It has now undergone EU chemical approval regulations and negotiations are in process for a UK retailer(s) (I am one who is negotiating a dealership) The Americans swear by it for flushing the many raw water cooled engines they have and for rinsing off hulls in a dilute. Salt water is harmful to many materials used on boats including the so called stainless steel used on many handrails and pulpits though a good wash and wax on a regular basis helps a great deal and salt crystals can pit GRP in severe cases.
