      Comments about Clamp-on Grouper Anodes:

      There was no sacrifice w/ my 'grouper' other than the boat lift. This was the second grouper style anode I have purchased from West Marine. The first one was fine and eventually electrolysis dissolved it. This one is still intact after well over 6 months. Has anyone else had this problem?

          Our lift manufacturer recommended this item to reduce/slow down the deterioration of the galvanized lift legs in our brackish salt water canal. The anodes took less than a minute to install. I would recommend that you keep the clamp area clean and reseated from time to time to ensure a good connection.

            It's a zinc. No big deal it's just an overpriced hunk of metal.

            Poor quality of alligator clip makes fail in saltwater

            Comments about Clamp-on Grouper Anodes:

            For the Grouper to work, it has to have a low resistance connection to the boat's bonding system. If the connection has resistance, the Grouper won't act as an anode and it fails to do its job. The current alligator clip on the end of the vinyl wire is apparently made out of steel, with a copper electroplating. This causes corrosion which not only bleeds rust onto the deck, but also insulates the connection.

            I think there's the opportunity to put some sort of clamp on the wire that would allow the grouper to be suspended over the side, while not putting tension on the alligator clip.

            In generally, this is a good way to get a lot of anodic material in the water, connected to your boat, so that your normal anodes last longer. However, the clip has to be improved.

            Comments about Clamp-on Grouper Anodes:

            Want to eliminate electrolysis on your outdrive? Then, this product is for you! Boats that are berthed in salt water conduct electronic currents that are in salt water and these currents erode metals that touch the water. This product absorbs those electrolytes and keeps them away from other base metals. As time passes, this device becomes smaller and smaller as it is eaten away so you know it works.Can you picture your outdrive being eaten away in this fashion? Cheap insurance for a reasonable price.....get it now!

            Perfect for the end of a season. When there is only a couple of weeks left in the year. You don't have to haul the boat to be protected. Just clip this bad boy on and you are good to go a couple more weeks.

            Comments about Martyr Clamp-on Grouper Anodes:

            I have used this for at least 5 years. It used to last until the fish melted to about three inches long still attached to the cable. I just returned one to the store with the fish almost the original length and width but with three of the four cable strands disattached waiting for the fourth to let go. It appears the manufacturing process has changed in the last two years by moving the cable attachment outwards to the side as opposed to being in the core. The life expectancy is therefore reduced by at least 50% due to the failed cable connection.BUY IT BUT BE AWARE.
