Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Rudder Anodes

James Alton


   I was told by another Maramu owner that my Maramu ( #220) should use 140 mm diameter anodes, one on each side of the rudder.  While I did not measure the original anodes on my boat, this dimension seems like it should be pretty close.

Always good to note the hull # and name of the vessel you are looking at.  Someone (especially Joel) may have historical information valuable to you in your decision to purchase.

Yes, the rudder should have anodes and they should be linked to your grounding system.

I'm afraid I don't have pictures of where they should be located but they should be about 4 inches in diameter and quite obvious.

If you search the Internet for boats for sale that have pictures of them hauled, I'm sure you will find pictures of where they are located.
