Galvoniv problems on saildrive of Volvo MD1120
The boat is 26 years old and every year the saildrive looks worse and worse. The previous owner always felt it necessary to paint the saildrive and the area around it with a very heavy copper paint in order to potect it. My feeling is just the opposite. The copper will attract the to softestest metal, aluminum, where as the Zinks look hardly even touched.
Not sure what to do. Spray paint the saildrive with an antifouling paint or they have this zink spray paint
