Battery Acid Corrosion In Aluminum Boat

Recommended Posts

One of my trolling motor batteries had a leak and the acid mixed with water that accumulates in the stern.  I noticed a good deal of corrosion  when I took the boat out for the first time this year.


I replaced the battery but should I be concerned about the corrosion continuing if there is any acid residue?   If so is there any way to stop it?  I was thinking of simply sanding the corroded metal.  My wife, a former chemist, suggested cleaning it with a paste of baking soda to neutralize the acid.


Any other ideas?
