I have a RMC bow-thruster on my 445 built in 2011 -- now the zinc anode needs to be replaced. Unfortunately I don't have the dimensions of the anode (the boat is in Greece and I am in Switzerland) -- can someone of you help me with the dimensions (outer diameter, inner diameter oft the screw hole, total width resp. hight when in horizontal position)  so I can organize the anode? (On a Greek island its difficult to get such parts...)

Many thanks
Alain

Have you been in touch with the manufacturer to ask them about the correct anodes? Failing that perhaps contact the Hanse Agent who supplied the boat. Maybe a Forum member will know and give you the answer.

Alain,

The Lewmar website shows 4 RMC thruster sizes 140,185, 250 and 300. Ignore the 250 & 300 size. There are separate anodes sets for the size 140 and 185. I would think the 445 would have been supplied with size 140 thruster but I don't know for sure. The Lewmar website lists the anodes sets as about 13 Euro for the size 140 and 16 Euro for the size 185 so in the worst case you could order both sets and not be too much out of pocket.

Hi Wayne & Nigel,
Many thanks for your input! I have orderd the parts for the size 140 + 185 (to get information from Hanse is not easy and the dealer lost interest as I do not buy a new boat frequently...)
