The outdrive on my 1977 Carver Santa Cruz is a Volvo Penta 280.
Does this outdrive require painting ? (I am having it hauled to paint the bottom soon). The boatyard wants $450.00 and up to do this service and they do not remove it from the boat. So it is masked and sanded then painted. How well can they protect it and is it worth it or even necessary. The Zincs are changed regularily.
I appreciate your input.
