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.

No. But that doesn't mean I haven't made some bonehead mistakes in my line of work. But putting a bullet zinc on backwards isn't one of them.

Since you are out of the water and have some time...spray the bolts with PB Blaster. Let that soak in, give it some light taps with a hammer. Put on some more PB and let it soak in. PB does work miracles. I've let some frozen bolts sit for a week or more with regular re-soaking with more PB. Give this a try before going to major surgery.

You said you used a screwdriver. If the bolt head is slotted or phillips instead of hex then using a screwdriver doesn't give much leverage. There are right angle screwdrivers for getting into tight spaces. The right angle can give you some leverage to better exert torque on the screw head. After letting the PB loosen things up use the right angle screwdriver.

Good luck

Dear All,
I don't know if I am too late in asking this question on the shaft anode, like sailchick my shaft anode have a habit of coming loose on the shaft. However in my case they start hitting the hull and damaging it! Why does that happen? I have tried tightening under water to no avail and thus had to remove the anode. The anode does not have severe signs of deterioration, am I doing something wrong? Thanks

Mike

Mike-

Did you use loctite on the threads of the anode?? If not, it could be that vibration is causing it to loosen up.

I have not used loctite but I have used locknuts (the ones with the nylon bushes inside) instead of the nuts supplied with the anode. What I have never done is to hammer it in, is it necessary?
