Prop Zinc

Can someone help out here?

The new owner of my boat (formerly "Toodle-oo!" now "Gyre") cannot find a zinc for the end of the prop - and I can't remember where I got them from. They do not appear to be listed on the WM or Defender sites...
The zinc I used screwed onto the end of the propshaft... Wasn't the best solution - would routinely fall off - but occasionally made it through the full season!
Are there other better solutions (that wouldn't compromise the line cutter...)

Thanks,


Bill Balme

Is it like this :
Martyr Anodes ‚Äď Zinc, Aluminum, Magnesium Anodes for Pleasurecraft and Commercial Craft

If it is there are several suppliers to order them from.

HI All,

New to all this, but grateful for the assistance. I am the new owner of Bills PSC 37. I have attached a photo of my prop hub.

Look forward to getting to know you all.

Thanks

I believe you have a 1" shaft. This requires a "C" cap zinc. If you have the prop nut, the letter designator should be stamped on it.

HI Bill,

Thanks for this posting and the response. I do not think what you showed me is the correct zinc, as it will not go over the cotter pin. The first reply showed a Prop nut and zinc that does fit over the cotter pin. I believe that was the correct one. I also found out I am in the water probably as we speak. Fortunately, Kyle removed the line cutter, added a donut zinc to the shaft and put the prop on and a lock nut. It is not optimal, but it is workable. Thank you ALL for the asistance !!

Dear Bob, congratulations on your new boat! The link provided by Adam at the top of the page is exactly what we have on our similar vintage 37. I'm going to try some serious loctite this year to see if we can get it to stay on for a bit longer!

Jay, PSC 37 # 171, Kenlanu , STILL snowbanks between us and the open ocean!

Are you sure it's not falling off because it's deteriorated?
