1996 PALLADIUM 70' SAILING YACHT:eBay Motors (item 200369565549 end time Aug-12-09 17:00:00 PDT)

Great looking boat until you see the electrolysis eg pic 197. I wonder what happened, was it lack of care with dissimilar materials, an electrically active berth or ??

I met a shoestring cruiser who had bought a steel boat with holes, an arc welder and some sheet steel. He beat seven bells out of the hull then welded external patches over the holes, borrowed a sand blaster and rolled on a few coats of coal tar epoxy. This took him 3 weeks. It was not that pretty but in the water it looked ok.

Any ali welders out there?

Looks like it could be a good deal for the right person (welder). I noticed that in the picture showing the electrical panel that all 12 volt, 24 volt, and 110 volt breakers appear to be single pole and in a metal boat (steel or aluminum) they should all be double pole.
