Can my boat be used in salt water without corrosion occurring?
Comitti boats may be equipped with closed engine cooling for use in salt water environments. Motor should be flushed periodically with fresh water to remove salt deposits from exhaust manifolds, heat exchanger and stern drive housing. It is recommended that boat be rinsed with fresh water after use in salt water. This is standard for boats constructed of any material, be it painted wood, fiberglass, steel or aluminum and all methods of propulsion. Comitti boats are delivered from the factory with a hard anti-fouling paint applied to the bottom running surface. Underwater drive components are protected from galvanic corrosion by Aluminum or Zinc sacrificial Anodes.
