26 Aluminum Boat Care Tips—Part 2

The shaft and hull should be electrically isolated.

Carrying on from Part 1, I have 15 more tips. Yea, I know, I originally said 22 tips, but as I revised this chapter more useful stuff occurred to me, to the point that there will now be a Part 3 (all written), although we will take a short break after this chapter to write of other things for the majority that don’t have aluminium boats.

John was born and brought up in Bermuda and started sailing as a child, racing locally and offshore before turning to cruising. He has sailed over 100,000 miles, most of it on his McCurdy & Rhodes 56, Morgan's Cloud, including eight ocean races to Bermuda, culminating in winning his class twice in the Newport Bermuda Race. He has skippered a series of voyages in the North Atlantic, the majority of which have been to the high latitudes. John has been helping others go voyaging by sharing his experience for twenty years, first in yachting magazines and, for the last 12 years, as co-editor/publisher of AAC.
