Corrosion never sleeps

Shame on the tender manufacturers that refuse to acknowledge this fact and design solutions to prevent it.
We have a 2018 Aluminum hull tender that has a bow locker with a plated hinge and stainless steel screws.

Pull the screws and put some Tef Gel on them. It may help retard the corrosion.
