Good point Rick.

When I took my boat out after two years just the swim grid supports and the sounders and their wiring was in need of more aggressive cleaning. The rest was pretty good.

We use our boat at least once every month (Oct to March you get places to yourself:))

If I get a diver I will keep your idea in mind.

David,

Can you post a pic of the “special nut” for pulling the prop or describe it?

I had a look at my keypower manual and it does suggest the thruster came with some sort of tool but I am not sure I received it when we got the boat.

Was it a particularly complicated process? Was the internal anode readily available?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention as I thought the external zinc was the only one.....

Chris,

The Special Bolt not nut sorry about that, is on board. Going for a cruise tomorrow for a few days so will try to remember to photo it.

In the meantime, this is the process:

Take off what's left of external zinc
Take off nut holding propeller on shaft
Loosen, with allen key, the screw on side of propeller (very important not to forget)
Screw special bolt into propeller and tighten until propeller comes off
Then remove what's left of internal zinc. (See photo for how it looks after this process)

Reverse process after adding new internal zinc and adding grease to shaft.

I get the anodes from Global Marine in Richmond, BC Tel: 604 718 2722 and they mail them to me as I live of Vancouver Island.

Last week I bought 2 at $36 each plus Canada Post.

Hope this all helps.

dboyes,

Can you confirm the anode number is KP12-A-001?

Jhance:

The specs from the manual I have show a slightly different number:

Zinc # kp12-A-005 but my research seems to indicate there may be a couple of slightly different versions. I am hoping to haul this week and check it out...if I can figure out the puller bolt which I have yet to locate....

Cheers,

KP12-A-005 is the external nut zinc (also 55989 zincs work). https://www.fisheriessupply.com/martyr- ... n-cm55989z

KP12-A-001 is this internal collar zinc which I am only now aware of. https://www.fisheriessupply.com/keypowe ... -thrusters

KP12-A-001 is for 8"-10" Keypower thrusters. My thruster is KP08E which I'm guessing is an 8", whatever that measurement is. So I guess KP12-A-001 is what I'll order and replace as I know it hasn't been replaced on my thruster for at least the last nine years.

Oops....apologies...quite confusing to me. many thing are....

Thanks for the clarification!

Odd that the manual makes no mention of Kp12-A-001 requiring maintainance (that I can see). I have the same model # thruster so will do the same.

I know... the manual only says that there is a zinc in there are needs only occasional attention but that's it... very vague.

I ended up calling Kobelt (Keypower) and they said as long as there is a zinc nut on the outside of the prop, the internal zinc is not needed. Their new thrusters ONLY come with the external zinc nut. The earlier versions of the thruster ONLY had the internal zinc. The external zinc protects it all. If you reach behind the prop and can feel a 1/2" or so gap, then a zinc probably was there and could be replaced if desired, but it's not needed so long as the external zinc is there. He said there was a cross-over period where they manufactured the end of the prop to accept the zinc nut while still retaining/installing the internal zinc. Newer versions only have the external zinc and moved to this method for ease of service.

So after all I won't be messing with the internal zinc.
