just had my boat trailer regalvanised  and whonder if there is a product out there that I could spray on and into the trailer to enhance the protection.
One idea I was told about was to block off the holes in the trailer with neutral cure silicon
cheers

I've heard of people flooding the tubes with oil, foaming them, spraying crc up them, all sorts.  No matter what you use, on a regalv the job is only going to be as good as the job the galving outfit did and if they didn't get all the corrosion with the acid dip it might die despite all your good work.  My viewpoint on it is keep the tubes open so you can inspect them.

If the galv job was good, and you keep it clean it should be fine by itself.  Run soaker hose down each tube and flush after each dunking.

i used cold galv on all the welds as the hot dip sometimes doesnt get into all the weld.... also spray lanox or lanocote on the end that gets dunked in. And i give it a quick salt away rinse when i park it up to go out for the day while its at the ramp. Just a 3litre water bottle..

Sprayed all the tubes inside mine with cavity wax, five years later it seems to be working well.

We have a Lanolin product at work we use on our cranes/cables/chains etc, comes in 20l containers, forget the name but will check it out tomorrow if I can remember.
It's bloody great stuff, filled all the drain holes on my quad chassis & boat trailer made filler holes at the high points with bungs then filled it to the top plus sprayed it all over everything nothing has a spot of corrosion on it, gave the underside of my 4x4 a lick of it to.

Say's it requires costic soda to remove the stuff  Shocked

thanks guys
got some fisholine and sprayed into the cross members etc and will take a spray bottle of salt away to use when the trailer comes out of the water each time and use cold galv on the cross members every 6 months, has to help.
cheers
