Zinc for PSC 37

At the survey the prop and rudder zincs were shot. The owner had picked up some zincs to change them but didn't have the right sizes and doesn't seem to know the size needed. (!?)

It's a 1995 PSC 37, 3-blade fixed pitch prop.

Tear drop shaped zinc on lower rudder hinge.

It's the prop zinc I'm most anxious to get. If this sale goes through I need to get the zincs changed pronto...almost end of season here.

Hi Dale,
Assuming 1" shaft I use a CMC03Z (limited access shaft anode).
For the gudgeon a CMT-20 (teardrop).

Ah, so you put the anode ahead of the prop. On this boat it's mounted on the prop hub. From looking at the survey photos I think I have plenty of room ahead of the prop for a donut style zinc.

Thanks

Re: Zinc for PSC 37

If you want to install a prop zinc, you need a "C" size.

Re: Zinc for PSC 37

I think the owner had a C at the survey but we weren't able to get it on due to the rudder being so close to the prop --- just couldn't quite get it over the fitting.
