surface pitting or deterioration.  Stray current corrosion     gimbal housing to prevent corrosion to your stern drive
is the decomposition of chemical compounds by electric   and underwater  parts.   These anodes  will be  slowly
eroded away by galvanic action and require periodic in-
spection. Please refer to the section on “Anti-Corrosion

ing boats, an improperly wired battery installation, other
leakages, or any other source close to the boat that has
electrical power leakage into the water. Stern drive units
are especially vulnerable to stray current corrosion.
Periodically inspect the drive components and thru-hull
fittings to determine if  stray current corrosion damage
exists. If corrosion damage is found, determine and cor-
rect the cause of stray current to  prevent further dam-
age. Consult an experienced marine electrician or con-
tact your Four Winns® dealer for assistance.
The use of some  shore power battery chargers, while
the boat is in the water and the battery is connected to
the system, can cause stray current corrosion. Have an
experienced  marine  electrician   review  any battery
charger installation to ensure a stray current corrosion
problem will not develop. An improper battery connec-
tion is a common cause of stray current corrosion.

Corrosion is usually  more prevalent in polluted or  salt
water than in clean water. It is also more likely to occur
when dockage is in an area with steel piers, large metal
boats, or where shore power is in use.
B.   Galvanic Corrosion
Galvanic corrosion results from a potential electrical dif-
ference existing between dissimilar metals immersed in
a conductive solution (e.g., salt water).  If these metals
touch or are  otherwise electrically connected, this po-
tential difference  produces an  electron flow  between
them.  The attack  on the more active  metal is usually
