A Permanent Solution To Painted Aluminum Boat Corrosion?

Aluminum boat corrosion prevention

I think we’ll all agree that corrosion in aluminum boats is a huge issue for most boat owners and rec fishermen.

Finding a way to stop aluminum boat corrosion is a lot like chasing your tail. 

If you’ve looked for a solution on how to stop alloy boat corrosion, you’re probably going through something like:

  1. Find a problem spot
  2. Strip it down
  3. Etch-prime
  4. Repaint
  5. Hope for the best
The only issue is that this is a temporary fix.
 

Typically, you’ll have to redo the whole thing over and over again…with no real lasting results. 

But it gets better…By the time you get back to re-doing it there’s even more problem areas and the issues are just getting worse. The corrosion has set in, and it’s only getting worse. 

Not much fun…

Stop Aluminum Boat corrosion

If you’ve had aluminum boat corrosion problems in the past, typically you’ll have had issues with the following: 

  • Anywhere with dissimilar metals meeting (aluminium and stainless steel) 
  • Hull corrosion Corrosion around the windshield 
  • Corrosion around the gunnels 
  • Corrosion caused by screws or rivets Boat pitting

Depending on how often you use your boat, how you house it, take care of it and your environment (salt or fresh water) the effects of the issues can vary.

But what are the issues this corrosion brings on?

As an alloy boat owner, you’ve probably dealt with (or are currently dealing with) at least one of the following outcomes:

Paint bubbling & lifting

Galvanic reaction between differing metals

Time consuming or expensive repairs

Complete strip-backs & repaints

Powdery or dull paintwork

Stone chips leading to corrosion

Screws falling out

No lasting solution to the problem

In short – aluminum boat corrosion leads to a lot of wasted time, effort, energy and money

To make things worse, the corrosion can be so bad, that you end up having to replace the whole boat. 

So, if you’re wondering how to stop corrosion in aluminum boats, then you’re in the right place.

Thanks to a new piece of technology, preventing corrosion in aluminum boats may have permanent solution.

Better yet, a one-time solution that has demonstrated awesome results for corrosion protection in aluminum boats.

So, if you’ve gotten this far, it’s time to introduce you to the Sea Guardian: A revolutionary piece of technology.

The Birth Of Sea Guardian

The story of the Sea Guardian began in 2014, driven by market demand. After speaking with numerous people, we realised they were all having the same problem – stopping corrosion in aluminum boats. After speaking with more and more customers, we began to see the following recurring issues: 

After hearing the amount of effort our customers had put into trying to save their boats, it became clear corrosion protection for aluminum boats was something people not only wanted – but needed.

Sea Guardian History

After crafting a prototype aluminum boat corrosion protection system, field testing began in early 2015 and quickly showed promising results. Driven by demand, more and more people began contacting us regarding this system and we soon had boats around Australia, fitted with the first-round Sea Guardian system fitted. It wasn’t long until we had boats in Cairns, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney.

Then came the results…

After a few months of field-testing, we began to receive reports from our test customers…and the results were great.

Galvanic reaction between differing metals quickly became clear as an enormous issue for aluminium boat owners…

The Results

'It was worth trying anything to try and save it, rather than going through the pain that I did on the last two boats. Admittedly, I was originally a little bit skeptical…It was new to me, I had no evidence on boats that it would work…I thought, we’ll give it a shot. I got onto the anti-corrosion system, we fitted it up and from that moment on we’ve kept a close watch…and the corrosion has stopped.'
Sea Guardian Testimonial

'I Had the boat about 18 months – had corrosion come on straight away (within 6 months).The boat I had before got eaten away pretty bad – pretty much all of it. I didn’t want that to happen to this one. We've had the system on for 12 months, it seems to be pretty good. Hasn’t seemed to be any movement in the corrosion at all. I’m pretty sure you’ve fixed the problem - I’m over the moon really, to tell you the truth.'

'It stopped the corrosion where it started. It hasn’t grown any bigger since then, and any new points it hasn’t lifted. It doesn’t get any worse or change anything…not like before I am very happy – and it works very well.'

The Sea Guardian system was beginning to show real results all over the country as an aluminum boat corrosion protector. Regardless of location, we were receiving the same feedback – It seemed to be the corrosion dead in its tracks.

Existing corrosion was stopped dead in its tracks

No new corrosion developed (no new areas)

New stone chips weren’t developing into corrosion

Dull oxidized paint improved and regained its shine

Any areas of concern were held and ceased to spread

Nothing had changed – the best result possible

The results were quickly noticeable

Before And After

Case Study #1

Murray (NSW)

After losing his last boat to corrosion, Murray didn’t want the same thing to happen to this one. Unfortunately, within just 6 months of owning it he began to see issues; bubbling and spidering of the paint, galvanic reacion around stainless steel screw, etc. 

After fitting the Sea Guardian system, Murray has experienced some fantastic results. Any corrosion in the boat at the time of installation, has stabilized and not spread, and no new corrosion has developed.

Case Study #2

Peter (NSW)

After re-building his boat from scratch (sandblasting back to bare alloy, 2 coats of etch-primer and 3 coats of marine-grade urethane two-pack paint), Peter thought he had finally overcome his corrosion issue.

Unfortunately, after just 2 months of being back in the water, the issue came back.

After fitting the Sea Guardian system, Peter hasn’t seen a progression in existing corrosion or any further development of new corrosion.
