Kristen,
What is the latest?
Were you able to remove it?

I am going to Crowley's tonight after work to tow a friends boat, I could take a quick look if you want. It should not be very difficult to remove.

Yes, generally you do have to tap the zinc halves with a hammer to seat them. Or you could use a c-clamp to squeeze them into place.

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.

Maybe it goes with the anode. All the bullet and egg shaped ones I have fitted to the shaft are a tight fit, so either a tap with a hammer or a squeeze with a clamp is necessary. The important thing is to have a good electrical connection over a large area between anode and shaft.

I don't use loctite or locking nuts, just those provided. They have a race with the anode halves to see which erodes fastest and so are very quickly unmoveable. If the anode ever slipped I would suspect I was using the wrong size for the shaft and would notice that when fitting it.

I get the old anode off the shaft with a hack saw blade down the gap between the anode halves.

Sailing dog and Idiens thanks for your advice, I might have used a 1 inch anode on a 25mm shaft. I'll make sure it's a 25mm anode that I use next.

Thanks
Mike

I think I can handle it without the "professionals" gouging my wallet.

I was gonna load up the full set of oxy-acetylene torches too, just to make it look good. I can't believe that yard went an low-balled you just to get the work! How the heck are genuine grifters like tjk and I gonna get by? (g)

Ok, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker
going here, two down, nobody on, no score,
bottom of the ninth, there's the wind-up and
there it is, a line shot up the middle, look
at him go. This boy can really fly!
He's rounding first and really turning it on
now, he's not letting up at all, he's gonna
try for second; the ball is bobbled out in center,
and here comes the throw, and what a throw!
He's gonna slide in head first, here he comes, he's out!
No, wait, safe--safe at second base, this kid really
makes things happen out there.
Batter steps up to the plate, here's the pitch--
he's going, and what a jump he's got, he's trying
for third, here's the throw, it's in the dirt--
safe at third! Holy cow, stolen base!
He's taking a pretty big lead out there, almost
daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher
glance over, winds up, and it's bunted, bunted
down the third base line, the suicide squeeze in on!
Here he comes, squeeze play, it's gonna be close,
here's the throw, there's the play at the plate,
holy cow, I think he's gonna make it!
