Review 1: John

Boat corrosion protection bar crusher

A brief outline of John’s story with his boat, maintenance and corrosion.

Johns boat was just 4 years old when he purchased it, however, after owning the boat for just a few years he had signs of galvanic corrosion (also called electrolysis) and paintwork oxidation.

After dealing with corrosion on his last two boats, John was looking for a solution to the problem outside of doing major paintwork.

It was then that John was introduced to the Sea Guardian system – A system designed to prevent corrosion in aluminum boats. John now experiences reduced maintenance time, peace-of-mind and a boat that he doesn’t worry about corrosion in.

In his words...

‘The size of the corrosion has remained exactly the same, hasn’t grown. 

The paint hasn’t bubbled up…normally it would bubble higher and higher. 

Since I put the system on, the shine has come back. I can’t get over the paint, how shiny it’s got…everyone thinks I polish it…trust me I don’t. It has not had one skerrick of polish, all it gets is a wash – It just gets shinier by the day. All the alloys coming up great, I haven’t found any new areas. 

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 couldn’t afford to replace it…so it’s simple maths, its worthwhile looking after. I honestly was going to strip it all off, repaint it, all around the top, the cabin – not anymore, no way. I’ve got stone chips all out the front from towing. 

In the past, the stone chips have turned into corrosion. It’s still there, but it hasn’t moved – it’s stopped dead in its tracks, I’m very happy’.

We’d like to thank John for his support of our system and for allowing us to share his story.

If you’re looking for a permanent solution to corrosion in your alloy boat, you can book a free 10-Minute corrosion diagnosis through the link below:

What It's Designed To Do:

  • Help protect paintwork and prevent it from bubbling, spidering, lifting or ‘flaking off’ 
  • Slow or stop existing corrosion from further developing or spreading 
  • Help prevent new corrosion from forming 
  • Help prevent galvanic reaction (areas where dissimilar metals meet usually aluminium and stainless steel)
  • Slow paint oxidization (oxidization of paint often leads to dull or powdery paint)

Review 2: Murray

Sea Guardian review Murray

A brief outline of Murray’s story and how corrosion quickly started to destroy his prized new boat.

Murray’s boat was purchased new, however, after owning the boat for just a few months he had signs of galvanic corrosion (also called electrolysis) and paintwork oxidation.

After losing 2 boats previously, Murray was looking for a permanent solution to the issue.

Since installing the system, Murray is now confident that he’ll be able to keep his boat.

In his words...

‘I watched the last one get eaten away, I didn’t want the same thing to happen to this one. 

The boat I had before was pretty much the exact same – after 12 years, it’d pretty much had it. I just didn’t want the same thing to happen to this one. 

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.’

Review 3: Peter

Sea Guardian rating

A brief outline of Peter’s story and how corrosion quickly started to destroy freshly repainted alloy boat.

Peter had issues with corrosion, and completed a full repaint to solve them. However, after a few months back in the water – the corrosion came back.

After spending $1000’s on repainting and a bunch of time and effort, the issue still wasn’t solved.

It was then that Peter got in touch with us and we hooked him up with a Sea Guardian System.

Aluminium boat paint

In his words...

It was terrible – I had to sandblast it all back and repaint it from scratch. Back to bare alloy, etch-primed it – two coats. And three coats of colours – it was all done properly all marine urethane paint. 

It was a lot of work. 

As soon as I put it in the water, that’s when we started seeing issues straight away. Within 2 months it started coming out I reckon. 

Spidering under the paint, bubbling up – the paint was lifting. When it all starts bubbling – that’s not the right thing to see when you spend a lot of hard work on it. 

I thought I’d go see Jeff and that he might have a solution for us, so I thought we’d give it a go. The salt would get under them (stone chips) and lift them up – they would just get bigger. It would just spider. Plenty of scratches and stone chips – you’re always going to get that when you’re out on the boat. 

Where before, without the system – it would be straight away. It would come out. 

12 months to today he’s come around and had a look, we’ve gone around it with a ruler. Checked it out with a fine-toothed comb. 

And the corrosion’s basically slowed right down to nothing – no more existing corrosion has come out since. 

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..
