Re: Floating Ground on Aluminum Boat: Voltage Reading?

We also have a silver chloride half cell. I believe their function is to measure the anodic protection or over-protection provided to a piece of metal (the hull in your case), and not the current that may be flowing to something. So if the piece of metal has sufficient anodes, then the reading will be "good", even though there may be a problem when the anode runs out.



You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
