Sacrificial Anodes

A Sacrificial Anode is a device that helps bleed off electrolysis between water and the boat hull. I grew up around pleasure boats and racing boats, it’s the larger boats that have these devices attached to the hull but electrical contact with the boat is essential for the system to work. I grabbed this image from Instagram, it is not mine but it shows very well why these devices are necessary.
