Zinc anode PROPERLY installed is key.

Here's a formula and if you don't want to do the math, give them a call.

You can flat get WAY back up in the creeks and branches in a little 10' jon boat and we found one holding a big population of bream (catch all for Redbreast, Bluegills, and Shellcrackers). We were tied off on a limb catching them as fast as we could bait our hooks when a rather loud plop! sound at the bow startled us. Looked around and it was a medium sized moccasin so I reached for the paddle to flip him out. My friend as it turns out is DEATHLY afraid of snakes and peeled out his revolver and before I could speak BLAM! BLAM! BLAM! and BLAM again!

Damn fool shot out the bow step right through the freaking hull! Killed the snake but as we began taking on water, I asked him if he felt Ok because his ass had just bought him a jon boat!

Since the holes were up front, we got back to the ramp just fine but what a crowd gathered as we unloaded it to put in the pickup. Guess it was a Week before my hearing got back to normal. A couple of plates of aluminum were welded over the holes and she's still fishing.

Yeah I was about to ask if anyone has tried a rhino lining the bottom of one to prevent/fix leaks?
