Syndicate Anodized Aluminum fin block corroding ... WHY ?!
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!
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
