[Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Prop Shaft Electrolysis

Hi Terry,
That's about what I've experienced at marinas.  Seems like they last a lot longer when sailing and anchoring most of the time.

Kent, I am curious how long a prop Zinc usually lasts you?

We have to change Libby's every 3 months. We have seen this rate of burn in 3 marina's over the last 3 years. No one place better than the other.
Knowing that Amel replaced the prop Zinc with a plastic cap and we burn through that particular Zinc every 3 months concerns me.
Our rudder Zincs last a lot longer. 6-8 months.
Looking for some logic here.
