Stray 60 millivolts, a problem?
By mid August my shaft zincs and prop zincs are all but gone. The boat is out on a mooring in Marion. I threw one end of a wire in the water and connected the other, through my voltmeter to metal part of the boat. I saw readings of about 60 millivolts. I shut off the batteries and got the same reading.
Is there a "normal" background level of electricity that I should see?
Thank you for your thoughts.
