Rusty Rudder Posts and Lazerrete..

Started to look at the rust and corrosion and know that once it starts it must be arrested. I had a hard time inspecting this and then putting the cover back on it knowing the rust was down there.. mocking me... so I rehabbed the posts and the Lazerrete. Here are the results...

Great Job on the rudder posts and the lazerrete. The new coat of white also makes a world of difference. I bought an old girl a couple years back and found numerous place like the port engine where rust had not been contained. CRC (and many others) makes a great rust converter that actually transforms rust from iron oxide back into ferric phosphate (iron).

Thanks guys I was impressed by the results and wanted to share. I used Zinsers interior/exterior latex 1-2-3 Primer. POR-15 for the Rudder Stands and then Zinsers.
