There is hardly ever a corrosion issue with a pakboat. All the aluminum is anodized, and there is enough open space in the joints to make sure that corrosion will not be a problem. I'd pay some attention to where/how it the boat is stored. Keeping it in a humid space could cause mildew. Other than that, we have not seen any serious issues.

That's been my experience as well. Unless you're obsessed with aesthetics, rinsing after every outing is unnecessary. After disassembly and for long-term storage, rinsing and drying isn't a bad idea since it prevents mildew as you say. In my experience that's about it for maintenance.
