  • 50 hp tldi tohatsu

    I have this motor on a 16 ft smokercraft and I have galvalicent corrosion as a serious problem with holes in the bottom of the boat and transom the motor has been on the boat for 3+ years. Before that I had a Johnson on it for 6 + years, no leaks

    there is a ground wire that connects the engine to the mounting bracket on allunmin boats this makes the boat the ground and has caused the boat to start leaking from rivets and other places any help with this

      All outboards have grounded brackets to reduce corrosion. You can install a rubber pad to isolate the hull if needed. It is highly doubtful that your rivets are leaking because of that.

        the motor was installed by a dealer and when they removed the ground wire the boat stopped being the ground

          Is there a sacrificial anode on the boat? There should be.
