Re: Shaft Zincs - WTH!!!
If I'm following, you're saying the aluminum paint acts as an anode? I'm pretty surprised and wonder how one would know, if the bronze is so covered, you couldn't detect the telltale pink leaching. Any chance your metal boat has other zincs that may be taking up the cause?
In any event, some brands of zincs have brackets molded inside, so I'm surprised that could be tossed off, if not worn down to nothing. Are you thinking your zincs split?
