Island Packet 27 Zinc

Does anyone know the location of zincs on a 1987 Island Packet 27? I've been on and under the boat and havent been able to locate any hull mounted zinc plates and so far water visibility is preventing me from actually viewing the shaft. But, I don't "feel" a shaft mounted zinc either. Any information or advice is appreciated.

Rb

On my IP31 it just has one on the prop. Also check out island packet home port. Lots of owners there.

Re: Island Packet 27 Zinc

Unless changed by a previous owner, all the thru hulls are bonded together. If there is not one, put one on the shaft or prop.

You can also ask the folks on the Island Packet Yacht Owners Association website for input. IPYOA.COM
