    Boat tralier

    So with new boat coming, comes a new trailer.
    What's the thinking on slowing the rusting? - and yes, it is a sea going boat not a lake boat......

    Any coatings ontop of the galv, or other tricks?
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    try a zinc anode at the rear of the trailer or even 2 anodes one each side on bottom of the frame. and if really keen take springs apart and wrap each leaf in denso tape with extra grease on the tape then tape springs once reassembled from the hanger back to just short of where they sit on chassis with 2 to 3 layers of denso tape adding extra grease to each layer , just remember to roll the end of the tape into a lump to make it easier to remove tape for warrant checks.

    Have come to the conclusion over the years that trailers built from channel instead of box section are far easier to clean the salt off. Spring prices today are pretty cheap, not worth worrying about. Usually spray with "lanoguard" or similar product when new.
