Why do I need anode protection?
It is important to protect your boat from the effects of galvanic corrosion. Dissimilar metals that are used within your vessel will create a reaction known as galvanic corrosion. Galvanic corrosion is an electrochemical process in which one metal corrodes preferentially to another when both metals are in electrical contact and immersed in an electrolyte (sea water). The same galvanic reaction is exploited in primary batteries to generate a voltage.
Zinc Anodes & Protection
Cathodic protection uses one or more sacrificial anodes made of a metal which is more active than the protected metal. The anode will corrode rather than your boat. Metals commonly used for sacrificial anodes include zinc, magnesium, and aluminium.
