I am replacing the zincs located on the pintle. The part that holds the lower end of the rudder. (Not sure that's the correct term). The replacement zinc holes do not line up. Should I just drill and tap new holes? What is the pintle made out of? I have tear drop zincs on each side.

The pintle is bronze. Are you sure you have the correct zinc? I have a 34 and I believe the zinc for the pintle is the same as the 37. I'm pretty sure it's the T-20 size, if my memory is correct.

T-20 Small Teardrop Zinc Anode

T-20 is likely correct but different manufacturers use different hole patterns for that zinc.

Thanks JoBeth. T~20's is what I have but the holes don't line up with the previous zincs. I'vebern using the PO zincs left over on the boat for the past 4 years. Manufacturer unknown.

I suggest you to go for limited clearance anodes. These limited clearance anodes are available in zinc and aluminum and also in different sizes. Try eBay/Amazon for affordable deals.

The OP isn't asking about shaft zincs. He wants to replace the zinc on his rudder shoe.
