So I pulled my boat a few months back and the guy at the yard says I need my shaft replaced. The zinc had eroded away. It had been in for about 18 months in the Chesapeake Bay
. It is a Sabre
38, 1984. The shaft is 1", about 18" protruding. It has a 'layer' flaking off, approx. 1/16". That is 15/16" solid shaft remaining. Once the loose part was scraped away, the remaining shaft is very solid to the touch. Does anyone have any experience with this? Does it need replacing right away. Mostly used for day sailing
and weekends around the Bay.
Thanks for any help.
Will try to post a picture later.
