Electrolysis Damage to Lower End 

Salt water, in particular, with a little stray current and time can be a real pain in your lower end.

 The only good news here is the top end, the thing with  the electronics and pistons, look pretty good.  Still, this will put a smile on any mechanics face and a frown on the owner's.
