    Mercathode question??-gctid370284

    A friend at the marina was getting his boat ready, and he touched his props on his starboard engine and got a shock from it. I also noticed his anodes on that engine looked alot worse then the port engine. I am wondering what would cause a short in the drive like that?

    Just a guess but if the shore power polarity is reversed some of the ground/bonding system could get hot unless there was a device to prevent it.

      My guess is that the shore power is no longer isolated from the boats ground anymore.

        There is a significant issue that must be found. Don't let your friend launch until it is solved.

          Something is definitely not right there. And I doubt it has anything to do with the Mercathode. Could pull the fuse on the Mercathode to rule that out to be sure though.
