Corrosion of rear bracing

I run a SS X-2 exclusively in salt water. The rear aluminum cross bracing that runs around the engine and rear lockers has a plastic/paint coating that is peeling off. See photos. Anyone else had this problem? Any ideas on a good long lasting solution. I thought to remove the bracing, strip it down and perhaps get a marine paint coating on it? Thanks.
