Regarding Zinc

Dear Minx27:

We had the same problem about a month ago. After some research and posting to the Bristol forum on Yahoo, we were to get enough information to pass on to our diver.

The zinc is located on the shaft behind the propeller. The Bristol 27 shaft is 7/8" in diameter. The zincs are available at West Marine a 7/8" shaft size zinc has a 1" length. Our diver was able to put this on without any problem. Also, the previous owner advised us that this was the correct placement and size zinc for the Bristol 27 as he had replaced several over his 7 years ownership of the boat. Originally, our diver tried to install a 1" shaft zinc which is 1-1/4" in length and would not fit lengthwise in the space on the shaft. Our diver's mistake in misjudging the size of the shaft.

Hope this helps.

Harley and Michelle
