Remember to Change Your Anodes!

Below are two examples of severe galvanic corrosion. Both owners had neglected to change their anodes for a quite some time. The bronze propeller was so weak that it crumbled in your hand and completely shattered when we tried to remove it from the shaft. The out-drives in the second post are a total loss.

A friendly reminder to change your anodes! This bronze prop had been in the water for along time without any anodes….

As you get your boat ready for spring, don't forget to change your anodes! Galvanic corrosion is a constant threat to our boats, outdrives like this in particular.
