    For those worried about corrosion issues see the anode doing its job and the aluminium looking good as @130hrs salt use

    The sacrificial anodes prevent electrolysis, not corrosion caused by salt water.

    I'm not a rocket scientist but not quite right
    The anode is part of electrolysis system
    It gives up it's electrons as the weaker metal eg the white oxide showing on the anode before the aluminium has to give up any electrons so no it doesn't oxides so no corrosion on the aluminium while the zinc anode is working

    Just a thought if both spotless just check there are bolted nice and tight as they need good contact to work

    I will check thanks for the info. My pumps and everything else still good no corrosion on anything. I will say this I hose off everything at the boat ramp as soon as I leave the water . Don't know if this helps or not.
