Abstract:

An investigation was conducted into the use of specially cast zinc anodes to cathodically protect the ground tackle of a fleet mooring. While part of the mooring was completely protected by these anodes, a lack of good electrical continuity in parts of the ground legs prevented complete protection there. A cable joined periodically along one of the ground legs provided the necessary continuity and permitted complete protection of the leg.
