At the time I first posted I had just decided to look into the option of aluminum anodes further. I also started researching into it elsewhere, with the technical data I have found I have indeed made up my mind that this is the best choice for me, others may come to the same conclusion. I'm not saying anyone else is wrong for using zinc. If I had to go into the water right away and couldn't wait for aluminum anodes to be shipped then I'd be going with the zincs as well and deal with changing over later. I asked for input and experience. Being that the majority of this site is supposed to be about sailors helping sailors I believe this a legitimate subject to explore, however the tone here seems to have become a little more charged than I would expect over such a subject.
