Re: Down wind pole corrosion damage

Good catch! I noticed Annie's short poles collect water inside. I have toyed with the idea of drilling a small drain hole to let it drain. Letting them stand upright in the sun for a week or so drains them but I can't always do that. (Admittedly sometimes just lazy and leave them out...)

A small crack emerged from under the black cover on the inner down wind pole. I drilled out the cover's retaining rivets and saw the full damage. Visiting the local welder to discuss options. Glad I found this prior to February's Panama City to Marquesas passage.
