    zinc anode or aluminum anode (combination of aluminum,zinc and indiumon) for jetski

    Anyone install one for extended salt water use? I know the kawasaki engineers did not design the machine with one and that's why the querry. I also know some of you 'Green K-nut Swingers' will say it is not OEM so it's not needed or who made you the engineering authority to even suggest mounting something like this.

    Anyway preventative nut-swinging text aside, is there a stud-bolt available to use for the seadoo anode or similar marine unit that clears the pump bucket? If you have used one has it decayed in a sacrificial manner like with the seadoo units and reduced ass-end corrosion and did you use 2, one for pump and one for ride plate? Thinking right now the aluminum anode is best suited for me.

    Been reading this 5hit below:

    guess you are reffering too me and others!!! why not anything to help protect externals and internals, after towing my ski for three days on salt water i was amazed how quick growth started on all the aluminium bits, i would hate to have my ski moored for any longer...

    Salt water related corrosion is such a pervasive issue that there isn't any simple "bolt on" fix - the only remedy is fanatical maintenance (i.e. hours invested in post ride care). That's why I never ride in salt water, and wouldn't consider purchasing a salt water ski.

    Jimmy that is not be a good thing, you might want to go to the hospital . The problem with anodes is that on the kawi ski there isnt really a good place to put them, I bought my ski cheap off a floating dock in salt water, you would not believe how much damage even being near the salt does. The key is maintenance and use of silicone or fluidfilm after a good cleaning. I do think the rice has arrived though.

    What's going on Sean. I hope you are making progress on your ski.
    If not, give Wavecrusher a call. I'm sure he can figure it out for you.

    Its progressing but slowly, I have it on the water but the weather isn't cooperating. Its tough to tune a ski when the lake is empty.

    I know everyone here has me taken care of, even rice man!
