BOAT ANODES - EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

“Anodes provide protection of boat metals that are in the water, like your propeller, shaft and skin fittings. By choosing the right anode, installing it in the right place and bonding it correctly to the metalwork you want to protect, it will halt corrosion. Ideally your anode should be replaced when it has reduced to 50% of its original build.”
