My question to all of you is whether there is logic in me epoxying over the keel bolts. Seems to me if I ever need access to them, I can (with difficulty) remove the epoxy. However, wouldn't this stop the two metals from reacting?
I used zinc chromate on my planes on the carrier, and on battery terminals on electric wheelchairs. A good paint & body or auto supply should carry the spray cans. Try not to breathe it. Forms a good airtight seal, but *way* easier than epoxy to unbolt through.

It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."
