mast

Hello CF and co
doing some maintenance on my aluminium mast (rebuild),
If I fitted an anode to the mast would this prevent corrosion between the mast and S/S rivets and fittings, interested in some views,

no intention at this stage of sailing her upside down
cheers:

Re: mast

You need to use a product like either Duralac or Tefgel between your S/S fittings and the aluminium mast. Keep the dissimilar metals apart, to prevent galvanic corrosion.
