Corrosion is caused through an electrochemical reaction of certain metals with its surrounding environment, usually through oxygen. The most visible form being distinguished through rust. However, to aid in the battle against corrosion, there is a variety of highly effective methods and protective measures that can be taken.

Corrosion is something that any captain or yacht owner will be keen to avoid or combat through­out the life of their vessel.
