Re: Massive Corrosion Raw Water Strainer

The strainer is (surprisingly) perfectly water tight. Could have leaked in the past, however, but the owner does not think so....

Re: Massive Corrosion Raw Water Strainer

I would not put a lot of faith in what the owner says. How many decades did he let that hose rot before he looked at it.

Bottom picture in post #13. 100% wire wheel on an bench grinder/buffer.. You'd be amazed a what you can do......

You are right, but I think only one decade or so...

BTW, he decided to buy a new unit. Maine Sail, if interested I can give u his # to talk to him about the old one?( He also has a CS 36...)

Re: Massive Corrosion Raw Water Strainer

The only way to know is to get the damn thing out and get after it with a wire wheel. With no connection to ground or the water, I'd be surprised if it's very corroded. If it is you'll know... clean it up!

Re: Massive Corrosion Raw Water Strainer

I agree that it's nothing more than a slow leak in the cover gasket. All the corrosion is below that seam, and dripping downward. Main Sail, you just got a great deal on a perfectly good strainer. Oops, maybe not so perfect since it needs a $0.02 cover seal.
