For Want of a $10 Zinc



We saw this sorry boat up by the St. Johns River. Galvanic corrosion was the problem. Both units are totally ruined and the left one is almost toally gone. We know nothing of the story behind the boat.

The moral is check your zincs and check for signs of galvanaic corrosion frequenty if your boat is in salt water. In worst case circumstances, new zincs can be consumed in weeks.
