Personally I have absolutely no experience with powder coating Genoa tracks.Answers my question!
The bog-standard powder coat gets a scratch, traps water and the blisters start, especially if you are in salt water. Oxidized aluminum has formed its own corrosion resistant coating.My Schock 35 is nearing the end of a paint job and refit. I want to have the Harken and Schafer Genoa tracks re-anodized as they sport varying degrees of “off-grey” . The anodizer asked why not have them powder coated. Anyone have any experience here with this???
This is a possibility for the #3 I hadn’t thought of. Thank you.Just a question...why not get rid of the tracks (weight savings) and go to floating blocks and "soft" tracks using high strength line(s) instead? Unless it is a class rule thing.
