I always look forward to reading Steve Zimmerman’s Troubleshooter articles in PassageMaker. Full of useful and accurate information, I have learned many things from him. I was surprised to read the drive train article in which Steve gives the composition of bronze as copper and zinc. That is the alloy for brass. Bronze is copper and tin, with a smattering of other components depending on the use. Brass is not suitable for underwater use such as props, shafts, screws, bolts, or anything else because of its propensity to lose the zinc from its alloy. I am sure Steve knows this and just mis-spoke.
