    Sea Doo rideplates and salt water corrosion info needed

    Being that I only ride in fresh water, I really am not familiar with the effects of salt water on watercraft parts. The question is, if a rideplate that has been previously used in salt water and has obvious corrosion near the coolant line fittings and the front mounting bolt holes, will the damage get worse even when only being used in fresh water now ?

    Also, how thick is the bottom of the plate ? Just curious on how big of a gouge a plate can withstand without becoming weak.


    ETA- as applies to RXP X plates

    Just make sure you have a good anode on the plate. Galvonic corrosion can happen in freshwater also. You should be ok as long you the plate is not leaking. It is pretty thick at the bottom. Most of the time the top plate will corrode first and leak around the bolt holes.
