Anodes

Post by falconer100 »

Hi all
I have been wondering about anodes on my barrelback, I've had some people say you need anodes on everything, prop, rudder etc and other people saying do not fit any on a wooden boat that is going to be trailered and in the water for maybe two days at any one time.
I would welcome your views on what is best.
Many thanks
Martin.

I use my Double Eagle in salt water. No anodes, no problems.

Yes, underwater stainless & bronze, wood & mostly on a trailer, that has a lot to do with it.
If you got aluminum outboard motor parts, or run a generator, or plug into shore power, then, anodes a big deal.

Thanks guys, I can happily leave them off then, one less thing to worry about as I'm bronze and stainless steel as well.
Good to hear from you again Bill, hope your all keeping well.
