Rust on G3 tower

Recommended Posts

OK guys, newbie on deck so take it easy on me if I don't do this right.

I have the G3 tower on my 2017 23 LSV. I'm on slightly brackish water (14 miles from the ICW) and the boat hangs in my boat lift. We are pretty particular about washing down the boat and covering when we don't use it for a week or two. I've noticed some rust discoloration on the stainless steel tower. Obvious a cheap grade of SS. Any suggestions on removing the stains and how to prevent it after cleaning?

Won't this leave a tacky film? I don't want people hanging onto the tower and then touching the rest of the boat. I use corrosion X in the bilge and on the engine.

It leaves a little bit of a film. I spray it on a rag and rub it on.


Not sure of any way to stop it from happening without treating it with something to prevent corrosion.
