Catching ‘Sunbeam V’ Corrosion Before It’s a Structural Problem


BAR HARBOR, ME — These two photos are of the ‘Sunbeam V’s’ below waterline area.

The first photo shows the beginning stages of “blooming rust” in a below waterline area of the bilge.

The second photo is a wider angle shot of the same area after Front Street Shipyard has done its magic. This is the primary reason for the Sunbeam re-fit: catching this corrosion before it becomes a structural problem. Doing this will extend the service life of Sunbeam V considerably.
