The ongoing Saga

Hankster08 - this particular boat has been down South for most of its life and unfortunately the humidity down there is pretty bad. This combined with the inverter being in the engine room vs the AC spaces is the reason for the corrosion - not to mention the salt water in the air which just acts like a catalyst to speed things up. Boats in the NE where she is now don't have that much humidity but we have to deal with freezing temperatures which is entirely different matter. Most of the electronics is not in engine room. Proceed with your boat buying plans. It is great fun!!
