I had a beginning of corrosion on different parts what stopped immediately.
As Rubato wrote above, look to the Jefa instructions, they understand the details Thumbs Up

So far my experience.

Happy sailing !!



Hi where exactly did you install the zink anodes for the steering system?

Note the advise: This is the reason that we can only advise to make sure the rudder shaft is completely electrically disconnected from the rest of the vessel. Often this connection in made without the awareness of the boat owner.

Thanks - how do you make sure rudder shaft is electrically disconnected ftrom rest?

Look in the back storage area that is accessed from the rear berths. Make sure there isn't a green/yellow wire attached to the shaft or any other metal part that is electrically connected to the shaft.  Also check the same under the helm floorboard where the autopilot drive is. You could just use an ohm-meter to measure the resistance between the shaft and ground (any green/yellow wire).

Just wondering how you electrically connected it to the rudder?
