Re: Lower unit paint/corrosion issues.

Did someone say g l a s s ?
Does that lower unit have sacrificial anodes on it?

I would get it cleaned up and repainted ASAP and make sure there are some ZINCS on it .

OK, I looked back at the 1st pic and can see a zinc, looks like it's mot doing it's job.

The 2325 is the most popular due to #1 Cost , #2 Sea worthiness For myself I have only one regret , wish I would have got the 26. Yes that extra 3 feet makes a big diff. in just r...
