How would I tell the difference between salt corrosion and scaling?


The ride plate and pump are completely coated. Tried applying white vinegar last night then hosing off after it sat for 30 minutes, but it's all back again this morning.


I've ordered some Salt Away, but not sure if it's salt or not because it's never been in Saltwater. Again, the anode is untouched which is weird. Any suggestions on how to clean this up would be greatly appreciated.

This was stored out of the water, or in the water?

I've heard of boats stored in a marina having corrosion because a neighboring boat is accidentally putting a charge into the water - and that bypasses your sacrificial anode.

Read this article and pay attention to the chapter on Stray Current Corrosion.
