Has anyone else experienced severe corrosion of the aluminium outboard end cap which has spalled the carbon tube out and any remedies? Its a carbon fibre pole about 8 years old

Not uncommon with salt water at Lee on Solent. You have to remove the corroded carbon then wrap around with carbon tape and epoxy to redox the plug. Dont forget the yellow and corrosion paste when refixing
