And rinse it off really well with fresh water after your done, and I think there was something about protective caps, and maybe a sealed bag for storage? I think O2 may oxidize some part and render it not as effective?

Only one I have used, I borrowed, it came from Boatzincs and had very good step by step instructions.
Thinking now it may have been dont remove the plastic caps, so read the directions before you even really take it out

Any advice/information would be very much appreciated, as I seem to have an issue on the f/g boat that is knocking bottom paint off the thru-hulls.
As mentioned the manual you get is pretty good. However here's some additional stuff you might find interesting- (not as reliable but at a pinch may be better than nothing). Bilge pumps are one of the usual suspects. and (not corrosion related, but along the same lines safety related).

I hope this helps.
