Re: rusting stainless



The point is this SS outdrive water pump housing got a saltwater bath for 9 years and came out looking like that





Myself and the entire fabrication world in every Bakery and Pharmaceutical plant bombards SS with salt-brined fluids and all kinds of harshness and just does just NOT have all the issues that seem to plague the boating world on a simple part that leads a pretty easy life

I can buy a simple high quality clevis pin that holds up my mast from a reliable vendor that will get hammered with saltwater everyday and NOT ever rust just because its really SS

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
