    Hi!,
    I found your post about the white calcium deposit. I have the same issue on my 245 in salt water. The anodes are dissolving so quick and there is a white deposit on the props and trim cilinders. Was it fixed with your mercathode system? My boat is in a slip between 2 old sailboats and they both are on shore power. How did your technician tested the DC system ?
    Thanks a lot !
    Nick

    Nick,
    Sorry about getting back to you soooooo late. Yes, the problem was with the Mercury Mercathode system which had failed. Had a tech replace the Mercathode "box" and then he tested for current in salt water immediately near the outdrive, and found no problems. I assume by now you have solved your problem on the 245.
