Unfortunately, a lot of people fail to do proper maintenance and then blame the gear....for the problems they run into.

I have seen zincs gone in 45 days and some last 7-8 months but it all depends upon where you are and how hot your marina is. This is NOT Gori's problem..

Gori should sue you especially if your are this clueless about maintaining your own vessel and then trying to blame the manufacturer for your own lack of maintenance.

No sympathy from me. One year...? Really? I agree with Gori even though I am not a big fan of their props. CHANGE YOUR ZINCS MORE REGULARLY OR FIND A NEW LOCATION!!!

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
