Doesn't it make a difference if the boat is in salt water? Salt water being much more corrosive than fresh? As an example, I've retrieved steel parts that have been at the bottom of a lake (fresh water) for more than 30 years and there was very little damage, other than cosmetic, and they were still sound. Walking around our marina last fall after haul out, I noticed about half the keels have some weeping streaks. We sail in fresh water and there is very little talk of potential problems. I would like to hear others opinions on this issue because one of the weepers was ours. Bog
