If anyone figures this out let me know. My boat is covered buy prior to my ownership I believe it was stored in a metal boathouse (which can cause some metal on metal corrosion).
My steering wheel has it a little bit but my tower is in rough shape the more I obsess about it. I have an array of things to try and am actually getting the buffing wheel (mothers ball equivalent) out today.
It is definitely "pitting" on mine and it sucks. Shows up like white or light grey water spots and besides making them less noticeable I have not been able to remove them with just elbow grease. And they are every freaking where....
Most likely I will be able to temporarily improve the appearance but it will return. My guess is either the metal to metal or improper previous cleaning has damaged the anodized coating. Might involve a full tear down in the off season and have it redone or maybe even powder coated to match the boat.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would be grateful!
