Re-galvanising Spade

I have a friend with a rusty spade, I have suggested having it re-galvanised, but he feels this is not possible. Unfortunatly the reson why got lost in translation.

The lead is encapsulated and should survive OK. Has anyone hade a steel spade re-galvanised and was it OK?

Re: Re-galvanising Spade

I knew a boater who lost the lead in his Spade when they re-galvanized. He filled with concrete instead, I think, and it still worked. Lovely anchors, those Spades.......

I have tried that ands its never held up very long. Anchoring nearly 365 days a year is tough on equipment and the hard sand around here probably contributes.
I also understand some galvanisers will reject steel with lots of paint, which means you may have a lot of work if you subsequently decide to galvanise.

Re: Re-galvanising Spade

You can actually buy "refurbished" anchors from spade anchors usa that have been regalvanized. They no longer come apart but otherwise they work fine. Sorry, I don't know whether they have to do anything special to do this.

Re: Re-galvanising Spade

We just finished up with the SW Boat Show in Houston and Spade Anchors were there, they have a new kit for touching up the rust, with epoxy paint, you might want to look into it.
Although you could just get a Mantus
