Ok so I am not a metallurgist by any means however I was under the impression that anodizing aluminum was done to 1) make aluminum parts "pretty" and 2) make them less susceptible to corrosion . I unlike most on this forum do not have the luxury of skiing in fresh water , I ski in brackish water (fresh water river running into salt water tidal estuary) . I have always rinsed my gear after every ride and never had an issue with aluminum until NOW. I LOVE my HO A2 and treat it like a baby , my concern is after just one season in salt water corrosion has started to appear on the fin block and will only get worse. I am looking for advice on how to prevent it without harming the ski (is there anything I can spray on it other than water to counteract the salt without damage to the ski's finish? @savaiusini
) I am afraid it will not look "pretty" for
long. For comparison my natural aluminum fin block on my old Iconn ski still looks as new. PLEASE HELP!
