Non corrosing filter mounting????


I've got a (standard?) transom mounted fuel filter (on an Avon 620 with an Opti 150) which takes standard Quicksilver screw on fuel filters. The housing seems to be some sort of alloy though which is corroding. Has anyone any ideas about where I could get a stainless / salt water proof equivalent housing/mounting

I think that most are alloy housings. Sandblast it and paint it.
