Mercury Outboard Anodes
Galvanized corrosion is on the mind of many boating enthusiasts out there. Without taking the proper steps to ensure your Mercury outboard is protected, you could end up with costly repairs down the road. Mercury outboard anodes, like the ones we carry here at Wholesale Marine, are ready to rescue your outboard engine parts from corrosion and here’s how.
Small Yet Mighty
These small saviors are all over your outboard motor in various places. When connected by either direct contact or another metal connecting the two, sacrificial anodes are quicker to give up their electrons than the metals of your motor, thus protecting it from corrosion. At one time, zinc was the most popular choice for anodes, such as the Technoseal Anode Kit. This kit is complete with six anode pieces for your Mercury outboard. Zinc was once so popular as sacrificial anode material that they earned their nickname “zincs”. Aluminum is another choice. We carry various aluminum anode kits with included hardware, such as the Sierra 18-6156A Kit. In freshwater environments, magnesium will well-protect the aluminum metals of your vessel, but aren’t well suited for brackish or salt waters.
