ProWell Prop Zincs!

Aloha Sailors,

Those of us who have these marvelous props appreciate our zincs. I searched far and wide after ProWell disappeared. The problem is SOLVED!

Camp Co
5300-95th St North
St. Petersburg, Florida 33708

GER-1 or GER 2. For my Aloha BCC #95 its GER-1 which is 2.5" by 2.5"

Miller Island in Baltimore carries them.
Viking Boat Supplies in Annapolis can get them.
Steve''s Yacht Repair in Annapolis just ordered 10 for me.

And by the way...nothing else works, no matter what they tell you.

ProWell Prop Zincs!

I came across your 7/18/02 posting regarding Pro Well zincs through google today. Island Packet Yachts 727-535-6431 also sells them (with and without the stainless screws). They sell to non-IP owners. We have a Pacific Seacraft. My real question, though, is what is your experience with the lifespan of Pro-Well zincs. I keep my boat in Salem, MA and I''m going through them very quickly. I''m on a mooring and have had the boat checked for stay current (so far no stray current found). People at Island Packet told me of IP owners who apply nail polish to the areas of the zinc that come in contact with the screws (small in comparison with the total contact area) AND they drill a hole in the zinc to increase sufrace area. Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated
