Many a boat is left outside under a basic cover over winter, surely it should be fine.

Whilst not on the Island, If you want a cheap dry unit at the end of A55 alongside 2 other big ribs over winter, Three gates, alarmed and CCTV, Pm me at end of season. If ours goes inside with an 8m RC, there'll be plenty of room for a couple more.

I have used about half the tin but it doesn't look overkill, to be honest it's hard not to hit everything under the hood while spraying it on. I did hose it down first with the engine running then let it dry before applying the gunk.

DWF will do that too-if there's moisture there when you spray it, it'll push the moisture in.


I use Corrosion Block spray for it-it pushes moisture out according to the blurb. After it recovered a mobile phone dropped in the sea while turned on, I'm a bit of a fan of the stuff.

The stuff I use is called "Shield" but I'll be b***ered if I can find a link to it anywhere.

It's a 5l can, stick some in a spray bottle, lash it all over everything, leave dry a couple hours, 2 or 3 coats, Roberts yer muthas bruvva. Nice waxoily coating over the lot, doesn't look pretty but keeps salt and moisture out

thanks martini I now have visions of melted hose running down the leg. Surely am not the only one using quicksilver gunk and they would be open for suing if that's the case especially across the pond. I have heard the same about wd40 btw.
