    East Coast vs West Coast Salt water boats

    I was just wondering if there was a difference in boats with respect to corrosion with boats from both coasts. I grew up on the beach in NJ and vehicles would show signs of rust all the time. I spent 6 years on the beach in Los Angeles and I never noticed any of the vehicles rusting out.

    So would you look at a salt water boat the same from the West coast as you would from the East?

    The vehicle rust is more due to the salt used on the roads. The Pacific ocean is slightly less salty and cooler and lower oxygen concentration than the Atlantic, so it should be a bit easier on boats. I still wouldn't look at a boat differently though as maintenance and storage methods (or lack thereof) are going to be most important. Randy
