If you googleize the term you’ll find other articles about it and procedures to check. I wouldn’t think it would be more or less prevalent on Marine vs other engines (except of course that it’s proven that sailors care more for their vessels than their autos) 😎

I don’t know whether this is electrolysis or voltage induced galvanic corrosion. But as everyone here knows “electrolysis” is highly misused. We carry anodes (zinc, aluminum, magnesium) to prevent GALVANIC CORROSION of parts (strut, shaft, Hx) NOT to prevent “electrolysis.”

Electrolysis is what happens to dihydrogen monoxide (splits to O2 + H) when you pass current through it, or did the experiment way back in HS. (We still had High instead of Middle.) Or it’s also how your grandmother took care of her chin hair with a depilatory machine. 😳


Both my of my Nonnas outlived their husbands and to celebrate they dressed in black and grew out their beards.

There might be more to this story but... the Detroit Yacht Club would deal with this person if you told them.

please do post.  thanks.  there is a member of my club who keeps coming onboard my boat, when i'm there alone so i need to start locking it.

They board your boat, open the companionway and enter uninvited.  I’m assuming you have asked them not to do that.
Can you form your hand into a fist?

I personally would never trust a malfunctioning breaker that was “reconditioned” with spray lubes.  They’re not simple switches.

Take the bracket off and straighten it with a BFH.

The alt. Bracket looks bent.  I've seen this on one other 34.

It has been a few years since I've seen the insides of one but I think that that hurth has separate clutch packs for forward and reverse. They are consumables.

I suspect a crappy batch of annealed 302 stainless sneaked it's way into production.

Compressors, thinning paint worries, cleaning spray guns, masking off for overspray. 

It's  a 1" stripe.  Tape it off and paint it with a foam brush.

I limit my purchases from HF to lumps of metal with with less than two moving parts.  I like their hammers.

My Honda 2000 always starts no matter how much I ignore its maintenance.

The Universal diesel has an unusually short dipstck tube.  When the engine runs it distributes enough oil through out the engine to lower the level in the pan below the dipstick tube.  When the engine shuts down and the oil returns to the pan it can't displace the air that's trapped in the dipstick tube.
