These are useful instructions for fitting anodes to boats such as canal barges.
For best results when fitting anodes to steel hulls:
- The anode should be positioned on the outside of the hull, below the waterline under the turn of the bilge.
- The anode should not be positioned in front of or in line with echo-sounding transducers or log impellers.
- When fitting and replacing bolt-on anodes, always ensure that the serrated fan disc washers are replaced.
The surface of the sacrificial anode should not be painted.
