Attach Zinc Fish on Ranger 25SC

Postby stirlenr on Wed Jan 30, 2019 5:09 pm

I am a new owner of a 2014 Ranger 25SC and keep the boat in saltwater where electrolysis is an issue. This is compounded by the fact that I keep the boat plugged into shore power. I want to add a zinc "fish" to the existing zincs and am looking for a good attachment point. I would appreciate any suggestions or a pointer to where I might find this in formation on the forum. Thanks

I think the battery negative terminal is the location most folks use.

If you do employ a Zinc Fish make sure it's working for you. Check it periodically to see if it's being eroded, and if not then either it's not connected to the boat's bonding or is an unnecessary thing to do.
