wedge corrosion


Recommended Posts

The manual wedge on my wakesetter lx is corroded, is there a stainless replacement available or a way to keep it from corroding(the corrosion is not to bad yet) or should I upgrade to the floating wedge?

Is the floating wedge going to change the wake size and shape compared to the manual one? Thank you

Can't you put a sacrificial zinc anode on them to stop this?

I installed a magnesium anode on the bracket and it seems to work but I wasnt sure I could put one on the wedge plate without affecting the flow of water around it so I sandblasted and painted it with some interprotect marine epoxy I had, the paint came off on one of the spots that was pitted. Would powder coat be a permanent solution?

Didn't someone polish theirs? Seems like that would be the best option. I was thinking of doing that this winter.

Some will say, "who cares, it's in the water". But I polish the transom, redo the teak, paint the trailer...and when it's not in the water this blotchy, corroded, half anodized wedge is all is see.
