May Checklist: Underwater Gear

1) Be ready: Have replacement zincs on hand before hull cleaning to cut costs.
2) Check the prop: Because stern zincs look healthy does not mean prop zincs are. Check ‘em all during cleaning.
3) Examine: Examine underwater metal parts after bottom painting—barrier epoxy and paint can plug slots and holes in sea strainers.
4) Time your cleaning: Schedule cleanings based on the recommendations of your dive service—they’re familiar with your water conditions.
