Hey Tom I'm up on the hard behind the Yacht Services shed at Haven Harbor South. Currently in the process of dismantling/removing the ancient Dessalator Duo D 60 thats been slowly rotting in place in my engine room. Fun times!! Swing by any time. If my truck is parked next to my boat, I'm onboard.

You can punch out the copper very easily then they fit

The Amel factory zinc is about a R5 size. I use a R7 and just drill it out a bit.

Hi Rick,

 

I’m assuming you are talking about the anodes on the rudder. We have used similar sized US anodes, widely available, and just drill the center a little bit so that the bolt will go through. I don’t think having the threads is critical. 

 

Where in Rock Hall are you? We base at North Point.

Hey Folks,

Wondering if anyone has a good source for metric anodes on the US easr coast. The ones I'm replacing have a 10mm threaded brass sheath in the middle to take the bolt. Any ideas? I've called abound a bit, no luck so far.

Hi Rick. Most of my clients buy the inch sized zincs without the copper insert ( easy to find ) and ream or drill the hole slightly larger to accept the somewhat larger metric fastener. I did this on all three Amel boats I owned with excellent results. Metric zincs are hard to find in CONUS and the ones I did find in Annapolis were three times as expensive.

 

Hope this helps.

 

All the best,

Joel

Rick, I just drill out the hole a little to fit the bolt. Do you have a VolvoTMD 22A by any chance. I live 30 miles north of Rock Hall on the Sassafras River and need to look at another engine , to see how the fuel shut off is wired. The previous owner wired it incorrectly I just discovered, and need to see how it should be wired.
Thanks,
