Anyone have a list of Zinc sizes and quantities required for my 68? Just bought it last fall and it is still in the water. I would rather not have to pull the boat to see which ones I need if possible.

thanks

I used (4) 1-3/8" shaft zincs, (2) 4"x6" hull plates, and (2) 4" rudder zincs. I think I found the best price at boatzincs.com. Hope that helps.

Awesome I found everything. Last question for the hull plates, with or without the bonding wire?

Mine have the bonding wire on the inside.

Happen to look like this?

Awesome I found them thanks a million!

Welcome aboard Scott, great to find another '68 35.  Timtation is on freshwater and should have magnesium instead of zinc but aside from stray current from poorly grounded docks we seem to have little problems.  I have two shaft zincs and that is all.  I have seen some with zincs on rudders and if in salt or brackish water that is probably advisable.  I don't know if the rudders/steering assembly is properly connected to ground.  Many years ago one of our original members had a 35 in Florida and found he was taking on water pretty seriously.  It turned out to be the rudder sleeve or post had deteriorated and was letting water into the boat.

West Marine usually has pretty good information in their catalogs about tech stuff and there might be an article there with recommendation about zincs and square inches of  metal dangly bits.

Slow typing, coffee cup refilling and an exchange of answers and questions has taken place!

Welcome to the answer place, what a group

Good catch on the salt/fresh water difference, Tim.  I forget some of you guys don't have to deal with those pesky saltwater issues!

Well im in Alaska on Salt water so its pesky here i come.

Matt,

1 3/8" zincs, even though our shafts are 1 1/4"?

Chris, your 31 has 1 1/4 shafts, the 35 should have 1 3/8. 

Scott, if your marina has a history of stray current, you might want zincs on your trim tabs as well. I keep my 38 in brackish water, (Charles River), and use 4, 1 3/4 shaft zincs, and 1, 5 1/8 x 7/8 round on each rudder and trim tab. I have replaced these in the water, it's easy if you dive. All you need is the correct size hex-key. I recommend tying it to a key float with whipping twine. That way you won;t need a second one. 

Looks like Nat took care of my answer. Scott and I have 35’s
