Beneteau, Sea Ray, Regal, Jeanneau, Dufour .... pick one ! they all arrive here with zinc.
Doesn't surprise me a bit. I have lots of brokerage/dealer accounts.

1.- Reliance. Made in Canada. Top of the line. Will install fasteners of your choice (when bought in bulk.)

2.- Sea Shield. Made in California. Also very high quality.

3.- Electrogard. Hard to find these days. Not a fan of their short machine screws.

4.- Martyr. Made in China. 'Nuff said.

5.- Camp. Worst zincs I've ever come across. Avoid, IMHO.
How about SciCast / Performance Metals?

19+ years in the biz and that's the first time I've ever heard of them. Looks like they do strictly aluminum anodes. Probably haven't made big inroads yet as aluminum is still largely unused for most saltwater anode applications.

Re: Casting anodes

Just one small point, If you are going to re-melt some old anodes, just make sure you don't chuck in a magnesium one by mistake. OK then, if you must, just stand well back, like 20 yards or so, oh and keep the camera running so you can post the video here...

Re: Casting anodes

I sell a simple zinc anode that weighs .37 pounds for $2.99.
If my math was correct it would take about 69 pennies to equal that weight.
