Anodes require a clean conductive surface for effectiveness. For most effective anti-corrosion results, clean the area where zinc is to be placed to shiny metal and never paint over any anode.
Selection offered here fits Standard size diameter shafts. Jamestown Distributors also offers shaft zincs in Metric sizes, available on our website.

What is the length opening side to opening side of the 1 3/4 shaft Camp zinc? I have 3 inches on my shaft to fit. Thanks Jim
Hi Jim, the length that you will need to fit this on your shaft is just a hair under 3" true.

what is the difference between a camp zincs and martyr zincs as far as quailty. thanks chuck ?
To me they're all the same. Buy on the sales.
Never used the Martyr zincs. Sorry. I use the Camp zincs because they're meaty and I like the price point.
HAVE USED THEM FOR MANY YEARS THEY WORK VERY WELL
Not sure about the quality difference. I change all zincs every season and these lasted fine. The boat was in the water from April through October.
This goes on my 1" bronze shaft, Easy to install one every year. Saves fastenings from electrolysis.
Excellent quality zincs.
These 1 1/2" zincs attach to the propeller shafts on a 36 foot trawler hull cruising boat. Because of the design of the fasteners on the split halves (2 on each split line), they cost 2x as much to install by my diver. It would be better to have one fastener on each split line using a flat screw or Phillips screw head.

Fits perfectly as expected.
I will buy them again
I buy this product every year
For the boat
the fasteners are solid and the ZN's seem to degrade more evenly. They seem to last longer than some other brands

this is more than about zincs which is my 3rd year of using great price and do the job, when i ordered these zincs i also ordered some paint both arrived quickly BUT paint had leaked a tiny bit i called and spoke to person a very pleasant Gal she was very helpful She said she would check into the problem i explained that these things happen and i wanted to buy a small pint or so to finish the job she resoned that amount was n/a She sent a gallon a no charge. i bought items from Jamestown when they were in Jamestown R.I. they are pros. thank you.
The best shaft zincs. Used for 20+ years
Camp shaft and rudder zincs have a cast in place insert to improve conductivity. They work and perform exactly as they should. I've used them on my 26 Bertram since 1988. A light hammer tap is all I do to set shaft zinc while tightening mounting screws. Don't just crank down the screws. The hex head screws are small on the shaft zinc and easily broken. Snug zinc and lightly tap to set and re-snug screws. Perfect connection every time.
Cam-X0 1/2inch were not tapered
Cam-X0 Zincs (fit 1/2 inch shaft for a De-icer)were not tapered as shown in the picture.Came as a trapazoidal solids with a 1/2 inch bore.
