Just apply your chosen aluminum restorer as directed. This should remove the buildup of oxidation on the aluminum, which is where the corrosion begins. Removing the oxidation will also restore some of the aluminum’s lost shine. There are restorers combined with cleaners or even polish, and any of these would be fine to use as well.

    Might try actually looking at the photos and previous comments so you can make a comment that is relevant and related…. You may also want to look at the date of the post, so your not commenting on some BS that has long since been resolved… 🖕

    If it’s from Florida that’s pretty common to lose a bracket to corrosion. Warm salt water is hell on wheels for most metals. I’ve known several people that just replace the brackets every time they repower. There’s a reason you don’t see very many aluminum boats down there.
