I own a ''71 Hallberg-Rassy 35, and the space for the zinc is about 1". To complicate matters, the shaft is metric--made in Sweden. I found a Canadian company that supplied metric donut zincs, but they were 1" wide. So I had to take them to a machine shop to have them cut down to 5/8" wide. I got a perfect zinc, but each cut cost me $8, so I added $16 each to the cost of the metric zincs. I have no idea whether I''m saving my shaft on a mooring in Maine, but I figured that it was a small price to avoid having to replace the shaft/prop.
I''ll dive to check mid-season.
