What is the spec. for this sacrificial anode?
Have you any more details, so that I might try it before I get this electrolytic corosion problem. I am pleased to hear that it is only cosmetic problem (except for the paddle, which is already difficult for me to pull apart), but if I can keep my boat looking good with just a couple of zinc strips easily fixed in the right place, then I will give it a go.
I've been reading about this rudder pin thing too. I think that I will be ordering a spare to carry with me. Is there a suggested list of spares that I should carry?
Bob from Hawaii lists his extensive tool selection as:
My toolkit I carry on my AI contains:
8" Crescent wrench
9/16" box wrench
1/2" box wrench
7/16" box wrench
3/8" box wrench
Short #2 philips head screwdriver
5/16" allen wrench
3/16" allen wrench
1/8" allen wrench
All tools have a (string) loop on them to clip to a Hobie Gear Keeper (#72020001) mounted to my PFD
Also in a baggie:
Spare rudder pins
Spare plastic shear bolts
Spare drain plug
Small piece of 1/2" garden hose (for nose of Mirage Drive
Spare spectra line
odd and end bolts, nuts, washers & cotter pins
All tools and small parts fit in a loc-loc waterproof plastic box in the back of the seat.
Bobs plays in the big waves in Hawaii so his list is complete...Pirate
