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.Alv wrote: ↑Thu Feb 04, 2021 9:11 pmThere 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.
