ZINCS

Rate this topic

11 posts in this topic

I have a 21 ft cc seahunt with a 150 hp Yamaha outboard. Every fall when I pull the boat out and look at the Zincs they look almost like new. They look darker but with very little pitting. I only use the Yamaha brand. Is there something wrong or is OK. I would think that they should be realy worn and very pitted.

Is it that they don’t get as corroded as they used to? If they’ve always looked like what you’re seeing, I wouldn’t worry (although I agree with Steve – make sure the zinc makes good contact). If you’re hauling out for the winter, I wouldn’t expect it to get too corroded.

It has been like that from the frist year that I got the boat.

 

I'd still check for a good contact, the zinc may have never worked since new. If they ain't go'in away they aint workin'

I agree ,if you trailer the boat and it only spends 6 or 7 hrs a day a few times a week in the water a zinc will be around for a long time. It's the moored or docked boat that gets the real test of the zincs, Change those every yr. JP
