    What is up with this pic?

    Is this normal? I saw this picture and its of a used ultra and it has a lot of calcium deposits on the rear end. Is this because of a lack of drying after use or does this happen no matter what you try to do.

    looks like it has been pulled straight from a sand bar and left sitting for (god knows how long) gotta say seen some pretty average pictures of guys skis on here. you could eat your dinner off mine as inside is as pollished as outside bye the way its ridden in the ocean as well as fresh water.

    Looks like salt water corrosion and lack of preventive and/or post ride maintenance.

    Poorly maintained ski in salty water. See this all the time here in Hawaii. Someone will make money rebuilding pump and maybe more.

    It's the early stages of electrolysis. It happens in freshwater too but not as quickly. You most commonly will see it on an outboard engine with a really badly pitted gear case as well as the little gray block by the prop (sacrificial anode). Those little blocks are to slow the corrosion down because of the material they're made of. I/Os are bad for it as well since they are usually left in the water. It could also be that the Ph levels in the water where that ski was left in are more acidic speeding up the corrosion
