Extra Zinc Anode
Small question here:
In adjunction to my zinc anode on the prop shaft, i would like to install an extra zinc anode on a cable. This to make the prop zinc last longer.
One end of the cable: the extra zinc anode hanging in in the water.
Other end the cable: hangs on the SS lifeline around the boat (with a SS carabiner).
I would then electrically connect a stanchion nearby to the propshaft (under deck).
Prior to sailing, i can easily remove this extra zinc anode and stow it away.
My propshaft is SS with a zinc and bronze prop.
Green-yellow cable of AC-shorepower is not connected to negative DC.
Is there anything i have forgotten why i should not electrically connect propshaft to the life lines?
