Need advice - aluminum boat moored in salt?

Recommended Posts

I've had no problems with operating my aluminum boat in salt when trailering, and hosing everything down at the end of the day.

This year I have the opportunity to keep it moored in a protected harbor with other boats. I realize after some (unknown) time the hull will foul, but my main concern is for corrosion.

Is that a valid concern? There's a zinc on the motor. The hull is welded aluminum. It's painted, but like most aluminum hulls it's missing paint on portions of the bottom. 

I would much appreciate any insights from those of you who've been in this situation.
