aluminium if un painted oxidises constantly

eg if you clean it with a srubber it will form a dull oxidised layer with in minutes evey time you srubb the oxidies layer off in will reform and in doing this you are reducung the thickness

Some people continuiously pollish their ally boats to keep that new look - beats me why they bought nan ally one to spend all that effort as they may as well bought a wooden painted ones if they wanted maintainance.

If you want the ally to look lik enew all the time there is a nialac ( spelling) coating which is clear and put on at some factories - but hell it scratches just like any other coating so............
